"The reality of overnight success is that anybody who’s ever made any real impact, constantly worked at their craft,

and as the saying goes, “paid their dues.” If passion, patience, and talent are among

the qualities that lead to such awards, Cirocco is clearly on his way."

~David Nathan –Billboard

Listening to a broad range of artists provided fuel for his creative drive, and by the time Cirocco was finishing High School, he was playing guitar professionally with national groups.

Once off the road, Cirocco's concentration was original music. Soon he teamed up with producer Jeff Glixman (Kansas, the Georgia Satellites, Black Sabbath and Yngwie Malmsteen). Through Glixman, and bassist, Jerry 'Wizard' Seay, Cirocco began tour rehearsals as a 'fill-in' guitarist for the Funk - Rock - R&B band Mother's Finest ("Love Changes" CBS / ATCO). Cirocco soon signed an artist/producer development deal with Glixman's Axis Recording Studios to enhance his own studio skills.

Within three years, his demos attracted the interest of six major record labels, when Orpheus / Hush Productions (Freddie Jackson, Mellissa Morgan, Najee) heard Cirocco's well-crafted songs, and invited him to New York. "I was on the next plane," he smiles. Eventually, Geffen Records was selected as Cirocco's recording home. But even though an entire album was completed, the project was never released, as a result of major changes at Geffen's fledging Black Music Division. Down, but never out, Cirocco was asked to go to Los Angeles by Motown & MCA Records. "It was time to move on and grow... so again, I was on the next plane."

Cirocco soon found himself busy in the studio producing and writing for The Boys (MCA), Johnny Gill (Motown), Shanice Wilson (MCA), The Good Girls (Motown), Howard Hewett (Elektra), Georgio (RCA), Leon Sylvers (Motown), Smokey (Motown) ... etc., etc...the list goes on. Later that year, Cirocco signed to Motown Records as a Staff Producer and A&R Production Consultant.

Cirocco's projects include collaborating with "The King of Pop", Michael Jackson, for the Sega Video Game "Sonic The Hedge Hog"; theme music for BET's "Comic View"; additional production & remix chores for Quincy Jones featuring Tamia; and also additional production work for Alvin Speights and Dallas Austin for the Grammy winning release - Fanmail by TLC.
