While continuing to hone his craft and studying the basics of music theory, Boonie's versatility expanded. His sound and interest strayed further away from hip-hop and grew more inspired by the likes of Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Bootsy Collins, Marvin Gaye and others. His musical direction shifted away from beat-making entirely, and after months of soul-searching, he was reminded of the only reason why he became a music producer in the first place. From that moment he vowed to use his skills and knowledge to work with the dormant recording artist he always intended to produce for—himself.
As an independent artist/producer, Boonie has since released multiple projects and evolved his sound into an unclassifiable genre of its own. His journey has inspired many aspiring musicians around the world to create from the heart and reach for their fullest potential. Every step of the way for Boonie Mayfield has been a learning experience documented for the world to see what’s possible when you take the skills and tools you have—no matter how small-scale—and use them to the best of your ability.
