About Me

 

Who I Am: Can't Get Riite a.k.a CGR

Bio: Music producer from Philadelphia, PA. I classify myself as a multi-genre producer because I make music that isn't limited to one genre. I have a catalog of Neo-Soul, R&B, Hip Hop, House and so on. I was first introduced to the production of music at the age of 12. I started playing with music at that time but it wasn't until I was 18 that I really got into making music and investing in it. I started off making music on my iPod Touch, using various apps before landing on "iMashcine" by Native Instruments. I mastered the app and then moved onto the fully-integrated software called "Maschine" after I brought my first laptop. Since then, I've been making beats and perfecting my craft. Some of my major influences are Jahlil Beats, CardoGotWings, Kaytranada, Pharrell, Timberland, and Swizz Beatz.
