New Black Kid On The Block: Range

- By Bossip Staff

Range

Range is the newest addition to the Star Roc/Roc Nation family, a singer, songwriter and producer discovered by the superstar production duo Stargate. Pop the hood for more details on Range and to download his DJ Drama hosted mixtape.

Born in Philadelphia and raised in Hartford, Connecticut from the age of eight, Range moved to New York City after graduating from college with a degree in business. “I’ve been into music since I was a kid,” the twenty-four year old explains. “First I was into rap, but when I was twelve I began taking saxophone lessons. From that point, it was all about my music.”

In his career as a songwriter, Range has written songs for Jamie Foxx (“Cover Girl”) Ludacris (“One More Drink) and T-Pain (“Down Low’), he also collaborated with P. Diddy on a Danity Kane track. It was while working with hit makers the Track Masters that Range first met Stargate. “We were at Battery Studios and Stargate was working right next door,” Range recalls.

After his manager Randy Parker arranged a meeting with them, the Stargate team was immediately impressed. “We wrote one song together and they signed me right away.”

Currently preparing material for his Star Roc/Roc Nation debut Range feels he is constantly furthering his education in the rhythmic science of music. “I’m learning how to play guitar as well as studying how to engineer a record,” says Range. “Right now, I am constantly inspired.”

In addition, Range is also working with Ne-Yo and Ryan Leslie. “Those guys are geniuses at what they do. They’ve made working on this project that much more exciting.”
