  1. Review by Andrew Masters

    My man, I had the pleasure of recording Marvin on a few Chrisette Michele records it was such a fantastic experience. Marvin Hollie is an incredible player/producer with the right attitude for any gig. I'm happy to have the opportunity to mix some music he makes and record him.

  2. Review by Kerry Marshall, Jr.

    Marvin is an Amazingly talented producer/ keyboardist who's sound embodies what an artist is looking for. Having personally seen and worked with him I'm more that confidence in his abilities to create lifelong music!!

Interview with DOPE ROAD

  1. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  2. A: With a few Capitol Records artists.

  3. Q: What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

  4. A: Did you produce that by yourself? My answer: Yes.

  5. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  6. A: Excellence!

  7. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  8. A: It's not a Job ;-)

  9. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  10. A: People don't understand the correlation between me being an Pianist and me being a Producer.

  11. Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

  12. A: Most of my questions are mixing questions. For example: The difference in the EQ for a Pop Kick vs an R&B Kick vs an Pop R&B Kick vs a R&B Pop Kick. Oh yea...there is a big difference. Drums are everything!

  13. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  14. A: Don't be afraid to say what it is that you are looking for! Never be intimidated :-)

  15. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  16. A: Interesting since there is no power in the dessert. I would take my Suitcase Fender Rhodes, my laptop (before it dies lol), my headphones, my Apollo Twin, and my Hard Drive.

  17. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  18. A: I've been producing on this level for almost 5 years now. I don't like using the word "was" but it sounds like defeat to me. I am blessed to be in my career path at this very moment! This is just the beginning. We have more Grammy's to win, Dove Awards, Oscars, Scoring Movies, more Syncs, Arrangements, Seminars etc.

  19. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  20. A: My strongest skill is creating! Point blank, I am a creator and I love creating from Scratch with no samples.

  21. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  22. A: Analog. You can't really pour your soul in anything digital, it's not real. Amazing...but not real.

  23. Q: How would you describe your style?

  24. A: Organized Noise!

  25. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  26. A: I would love to work with Beyonce because of her level of musicianship crossed with the sound of today. I would also love to work with Chris Brown and DeAngelo. I love the Musicality that they both bring. I miss songs with real Bridges, and more than two chords. Real Music!!

  27. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  28. A: K.I.S.S. Keep It Simple Stupid!

  29. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  30. A: Most of my work is Pop R&B, Pop, and Hip Hop along with tons of arranging for Artist show tapes and concerts.

  31. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  32. A: I bring love and life to a song. Everything doesn't have to be DARK. I love Stevie Wonder! I love live instruments, strings, horns, fender rhodes, guitars, etc.

  33. Q: What's your typical work process?

  34. A: My work process starts when I wake up. I meditate, hit the gym, and then off to the studio. The gym and meditation gets my mind ready for creativity. Once I get to the studio it just comes natural and happens effortlessly.

  35. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  36. A: My inspiration comes from my circle, Keith Harris, Kevin Randolph, and Jerome "J Roc" Haromon. These are some of the industries most efficient and talented producers. I am also heavily inspired by vintage Jazz, 90's R&B, Journey, Nirvana, and the Beatles.

  37. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  38. A: The most common type of work that I do for my clients would be creating from scratch and producing an entire record with a top line melody. I also very often arrange different records, and complete ideas for my clients.
