Hip-Hop fans may recognize Ill Poetic as the man behind the boards of Detroit artist Chris Orrick's 2016 album“Instinctive Drowning” (Mello Music Group).
Praised not only as a powerful and emotional project, Ill Poetic was highlighted by numerous national media outlets for his progressive, boundary-pushing production on the record as well. Those familiar with Ill Po’s career wouldn’t be surprised by these descriptions; he’s built a career unbound by genre, or even industry.
With 2012's "Synesthesia Yellow" and 2016's "The Silhouette Project", Ill Poetic began focusing on crafting a unique new sound and creative process for each project. With his most recent album, "An Idiot's Guide to Anarchy", he continues to evolve; diving flawlessly into rich and layered production, live instrumentation, vocalists, and exciting new songwriting structures. Working with artists from Ohio’s legendary ‘60s/’70s Ohio Funk scene as well as a plethora of diverse young musicians & vocalists, Ill Poetic creates a unique sound steeped in a classic Ohio funk and soul outfit that travels from psych-rock to industrial, from 808s to the ethereal: A Postmodern George Clinton with biting lyricism fueled by the soul of George Carlin.
