As producer, Jimmy Ball has seen much success. Pushing the limits of musical genres and reinventing standards within his locale, Jimmy has also seen some failures. In his own words, “ Coming from a rough neighborhood in ‘the Bend’ having an attitude of ‘I’m the best!” was necessary for a young boy to develop because the meek in these communities did not succeed …”
Forced by honor to live up to his own words, Jimmy spent countless hours composing beats, scoring films and mastering audio engineering. Day-in and day-out, he worked on what he thought would change his surroundings believing that his music had the power to give him a greater platform.
Taking a deeper turn into his musicianship in 2009, Jimmy decided to simultaneously pursue playing different instruments; more interesting to him, the piano. His mother and stepfather led a local church congregation on Saturday’s in Atlanta and happened to have a Korg Triton in their inventory. Jimmy took what he had and built his workspace around it, selling beats and studio time out his parent’s garage to the local artists in the area.
Jimmy rode a wave of budding success in Atlanta’s city of opportunity working at DTP Studios and Patch Works Studios on several projects. Jimmy eventually had the pleasure of meeting stars such as Ludacris, Young Dro, Waka Flacka, 2 Chainz and others.
After moving back to the Midwest, Jimmy added gospel music production to his repertoire of talents while working alongside 9x billboard charting producer Floyd “Timeless” Thomas. Assisting him in the opening of his professional recording studio, Jimmy worked on projects for Charlie Wilson, Rihanna, Wayne Starks, Allegro Adams and Yolanda Adams.
Jimmy Ball now has his first billboard charting after working with the likes of Fort Wayne’s Niyoki, who is currently signed to Uncle G Records and formally signed to a subsidiary of Universal Records.
