reality of overnight success is that anybody who’s ever made any real impact, constantly worked at their craft,
as the saying goes, “paid their dues.” If passion, patience, and talent are among
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
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.
Some of Cirocco's latest music
concentrations have been both creative and professional music business consulting for various music productions and special
projects for Manuel Seal Jr., Alvin Speights, Mac Ten Publishing, John Crossland, Rika Muranaka, Charlie Wilson, Oliver Stone
Productions, ESPN Sports Center, PepsiCo, GM-Lincoln Mercury, Brad Buxer, DreamCatchers Entertainment, Kass Publishing, Sigidi
Abdallah, Jacopo TV, Allenhouse Films, Ryan Beatty of OcSkee Entertainment, Oceanic Tradewinds Music, and many up-and-coming
indie producers, artists, songwriters, and managers. Cirocco was equally proud of his participation with the release: "Heaven"
in which he produced and co-wrote for the Special 911 September 11 relief fund - Sponsored by Kass, The United Way & New
Cirocco is also the author of "The Music
Powers That Be...To Succeed In The Music Industry" a music industry book that truly empowers the next generation
of artists & record producers to make better choices for success by attaining the knowledge they will need in order to
win -- and not get cheated playing the music game! Cirocco adds, "I
think it's the best help available for new artists & producers with more talent than money!"
