As a musician, artist, producer & director bound by a necessity and love for the art, Brother El blends art from true creative aspects with an esoteric intensity. His compositions can only be described as an eclectic mix of electronica, hip hop and ambient styles layered upon an urban landscape. Along with founding the "The Hip Hop Project" at Loyola University Chicago's radio station WLUW 88.7 FM, Brother El has cultivated musical collaborations with various artists including Chicago rap group Earatik Statik. In addition, Brother El shared his journey through chaos with the release of the solo album “Through the Cracks of Concrete”. His award winning album threads the inspirations and voices of African diaspora, past and present while showcasing his individual technique capturing the sighs of Chicago's elevated trains and pavement pounds despite the cracks. A native of Chicago, Brother El is CEO of The Beat Bank, an independent record label and production studio focusing on artist development and quality productions over quantity and trend.
