D. Vincent Williams
Executive VP / Chief Creative Officer
The unsung heroes of the Nashville music scene, songwriters seldom command the spotlight that performing artists do, but hit-maker D. Vincent Williams is a worthy exception to the rule. With undeniable talent as a gifted–and chart-topping–songwriter, backed by years of performing experience, this hit-maker is ready to take center stage in every way.
“I was singing before I could really talk, music just came naturally to me,” remembers Williams. “Songwriting is no different. I hear the melody in my head and then take notes of the pictures that come to mind. The ability to sing, play and write has given me an unlimited freedom of expression.”
Over the course of his remarkable songwriting career, Williams has landed cuts on albums that have sold more than 15 million copies, including “I’m Movin’ On” by Rascal Flatts, Ty Herndon’s “Hands Of A Working Man” and James Otto’s “Just Got Started Lovin’ You.” He has had songs recorded by esteemed artists including Kenny Rogers, Randy Travis, Reba McEntire, Ronnie Milsap, Jason Aldean, and Lee Ann Womack.
“I didn’t choose songwriting, it chose me,” says Williams.
Director, Studio Operations
Dallan Beck has spent the past 20 years with the Musicians Institute in Los Angeles, SAE, NFI and Dark Horse Institute, teaching thousands of students with aspirations of becoming professional recording engineers.
Amidst all of his educational endeavors, Beck has found the time to publish four instructional books and videos for Hal Leonard on the recording arts. All of this is based on his experience as an independent audio engineer, starting out at the infamous Cherokee Studios in Los Angeles and leading up to his current role at Ground Zero Studios in Nashville, which has afforded him the opportunity to work with some of the top LA and Nashville session musicians, on albums for Tone Center Records, Legato Records, Paranormal Records and MGM Pictures.
