Edwin Soto
grew up as a New York City musician. His love for entertainment started listening to his mom's record collection of pop, Latin, and r&b. After enrolling in a queens acting and modeling agency, he performed several modeling shows and theatre plays. One of those performances was singing at Madison Square Garden. All before turning 9 years old.

Edwin picked up a trombone at the age of 9 and has been playing professionally ever since. Not leaving behind his singing roots, he began to compose original works at the age of 14. Since then, he's performed at several venues, like the prestigious Carnegie Hall and at Lincoln Center (Alice Tully Hall). Edwin attended The City College of New York and majored in Music Production.

His vision of giving back to the community that has given him so much, started out by giving a couple of local rappers their chance to create a demo for free.  The vision became a reality when long-time musician friend, Nick Simone, decided to join him in creating the most affordable recording studio in New York.

He is currently working closely with Big Break Productions on a concert that he will headline Summer 2004.

Nick Simone
has been making himself into a well rounded musician since his early childhood.  His parents were a big influence, musically, early on.  He began studying clarinet (after pestering his mother for one). It was there where he quickly learned to read music and have a great sense of pitch. Eager to constantly learn more he turned to his father, a professional drummer, to keep up his musicianship abilities over the years.  Thanks to him, he ended up picking up several instruments as a result.  Nick has expanded his knowledge playing clarinet, guitar, bass, drums, and piano professionally.

He received a scholarship to Wagner College for music performance and was able to expand his knowledge of music. His variety in playable instruments allowed him to play in multiple ensembles ranging from classical to jazz. Nick continues to perform as a baritone for the Wagner college choir that tours every year.

Nick performs at least 10 times a year with different ensembles. Some venues include, Carnegie Hall with the Wagner College Choir, the Metropolitan Opera House for MTV's opening act of the Video Music Awards in '01.

Being engaged with music performance has driven him towards recording audio.  So it was inevitable that he and Edwin would become partners in working toward a more affordable approach in audio production. He is currently a guitar instructor and plays Bass with a group called 'Stone Groove'.
