A Chat With Songwriter & Producer Dozenz

Where are we talking from today?

I'm in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Where did you get your artist's name from?

Playing "dozens" was something we used to do as kids in L.A. when I was growing up although we didn't know that was what it was called. It's a game of one-up-manship and is quite foundational to rap battles. I wanted a name that reflected the mission to have which is to mix-up dozens of genres, work with dozens of artists, and create dozens of memorable and enjoyable tunes. Hence, Dozenz.

Music-wise what are you working on right now?

Working on a new batch of synthpop tunes and a couple of rock songs with some The Beatles, Inxs, and U2 vibes. Also expanding my collaborator network beyond my usual haunts to get some more diversified and undiscovered talent on the records.

Are you currently promoting a single or album?

I'm promoting my SoundCloud session/album as a preview for the material I'll be releasing next. let's just say I'm saving the best for last.

Who or what were the most significant influences on your musical life and career?

My mother had the biggest influence on me and gave me my musical foundations and appreciation for pop music and great but tasteful songwriting and singing. She's still one of my first sounding boards for my ideas. Then it was Run-DMC, LL Cool J, Tupac, Teddy Riley, The Beach Boys, Tears for fears, Crowded House, Oasis, Radiohead, The Beatles, U2, Take That (mostly Gary Barlow), Bruno Mars, and recently Taylor Swift (she's good with the stories and hooks)

Who are your favorite musicians?

Johnny Greenwood and The Edge are my guitar heroes, Questlove from The Roots, Bootsy Collins bass, Dave Grohl on anything, Reni and Mani, and Johnny Squire from The Stone Roses (what a band!), Bernard Butler, John Mayer. There are so many.
