About iWorkMusic: Born on November 24, 1984 in Washington DC, Pierre Johnson was raised in lower income housing by his single mother, and grandmother. His love for music started in church where he began playing the drums at the age of 7 years old. Throughout the years Pierre began to broaden his musical horizons by trying his hand at the piano, keyboard, and organ; but in 1998 he discovered the electric guitar, and that began a new chapter in his life. In high school around the time that Pierre was in the 10th grade, he joined the “Pep” band and began to sharpen his skill. He would also sharpen his lyrical skill, by engaging in different hip hop ciphers in class, or at lunch time.
After High school, Pierre attended The Art Institute of Washington, where he majored in Interactive Media Design, and minored in Graphic Design. In college Pierre along with other classmates formed a rap super group called “Team Proper”. The group disbanded in 2006, leaving Pierre to look for other musical outlets. From 2006 to 2009 Pierre was trying to find his place in the musical scene of Washington DC, so he joined several different “Go-go” bands, all of which had no direction for where they wanted to take the music.
Finally in 2009 Pierre would link up with an old high school band mate that was running his own production company to record his first project “The Hyliphe” (pronounced high life) but due to a misunderstanding between the two, the project never saw the light of day. In 2010 Pierre, frustrated with the stagnation of his musical career, started to learn production, and recording techniques. By September Pierre was ready to release his first project “STSHbx” (pronounced Stash box) with production from him as well as other musician friends. In 2011 Pierre started working on his own record company “Red House Recordings” with the companies first mix tape release of “The Soup” featuring all original production from Pierre, as well as cameo appearances from upcoming Red House Recording artist.
In the next 5 years Pierre plans to take his music career to higher heights. Pierre is currently working with Universal recording artist Marky with his “Winning Streak” movement. He has interned at Studio 43, an independent boutique recording label out of Washington DC owned and ran by Kenny Burns. Pierre is exploring song writing for other artist, as well as working on more solo projects, and projects for the artist under his independent label.
