Dr. Potter Interview

How did your name come about?   My mother always wanted me to become a doctor….  I became a music producer.  The name Dr. Potter was the closest thing I could give her.

Where are you from?   Green Bay, WI.  There is a ton of hip-hop talent up here despite the off radar location and the freezing temperatures.  WI is making major moves in the very near future.

Where can artists find your beats?   http://beatsbydoc.com | http://soundcloud.com/drpotterbeatz

How long have you been making music?   I started playing the piano when I was 8 but have been producing music seriously for just shy of 2 years.

Can you tell us about your latest project?   My partner @tripsetbeatz and I @drpotterbeatz just finished up a joint project beat tape titled “Mediistrumentals” that we will be releasing on all the major mixtape sites the end of this week.

How have you ended up in the music industry?   I spent  a number of frustrating years exploring other career options as well as attempted college twice and always came back to music because in order to be happy i have to do what I love to do.

What was the first album you bought?   Dr. Dre The Chronic 1992

What’s your favourite song at the moment?    “I fly high” Dizzy Wright feat. Nikkiya

How do you think you differ from other producers?    I produce all my beats on my IPad.  I have yet to meet any other producers that do that.

What is your favourite saying?   My dad once told me “you are the creator of your own destiny.” That has always stuck with me.

What other hobbies or interests do you have?    I volunteer my time at my son’s school teaching in his music class as well as helping in the computer lab. Im not ashamed to say I paint my daughters nails and play tea party too.

Thank you for your time and may you carry on making dope beats.

Thank you
