Super producer, Harmony “H-Money” Samuels (@HarmonyBOE) is a force to be reckoned with. The British native has taken the music world by storm and produced songs for some of the biggest names in the music industry including: Ne-Yo, Chris Brown, Brandy, Kelly Rowland, Fantasia, Maroon 5 and more. He has the special ability to make an artist feel “safe” with him and draw our their true feelings when they’re behind the microphone. His ability to help artists open up proves that Harmony is more than just a music producer and a businessman, but he is also the artist’s friend, counselor and confidant.
I recently had the change to sit down with Harmony and talk about his close relationship with Chris Brown, his love life, what he does to make an artist feel vulnerable behind the microphone and how he plans to bring back 90s R&B. Check out our interview below:
HelloBeautiful: You were born in the UK and but you came to America to pursue music. Tell me a little bit about that…
Harmony: I’ve been in music since I was four years old and that’s when I started to play my first instrument. I grew up in the church and I was a music director by the age of 12. By 15, I figured that production was where I wanted to be and was what I wanted to do. England is very small compared to the rest of the world, so it doesn’t have much space for producers (especially black producers).
