Lecture Series: Writter/ Musician/ Music Producer SIMON ILLA Nov 17, 2016 at 2 pm & 7:30 pm,
Zlock Performing Arts Center
Masterclass 2 pm- Insight of Music as a Business- FREE and Open to Public
Writing music since the age of thirteen, Simon Illa has been steadily gaining momentum within the music industry. After moving his production company (Unbreakable Music Group, LLC.) to the east coast in 2001, Simon's incredibly diverse production skills brought him to the forefront of the independent music scene. Legendary producers/writers Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff briefly took Simon under their wings to develop several artists and from that point, Simon's reputation for producing music within numerous genres began to grow. Producing everything from Pop to Rap and Gospel to Rock (and everything in between) Simon earned an East Coast Emmy nomination for his music for NBC's "Tribute to 9/11" in 2003 and was dubbed "Philadelphia's Hottest Producer" by Blender Magzine" in 2006 and "...one of the world’s most foremost and phenomenal musical producers" by Urban Mogul Magazine in 2008. The list of production credit, which is quite extensive, includes dozens of artists, soundtrack work for "American Rap Stars", "Invincible", and "G", tour production for Vivian Green and Floetry, music for Major League Baseball, the NFL, and a handful of music for radio and television. More recently, Simon Illa has expanded his audience even further with his current work under the guidance of Murray Media Music, as well as his recent appearance on TLC's hit television series "Miami Ink".
Lecture 7:30pm- Ticketed
We all have strengths and weaknesses. Know your strengths and find ways to use what others may perceive as weaknesses and embrace them. By using his own personal story, Simon will show how focusing on his abilities has dictated his life path instead of his ‘disabilities’. Meet & Greet and book signing following lecture.
