The Greatest Producer/Songwriter Of All Time, My Friend Mr. Rudy Perez.
The most incredible, impressive and accomplished resume in the music industry and he’s just getting started! More than a dear friend and a mentor to me personally, Rudy Perez stands as a shining example of what happens when brilliant, God-given ability is bestowed upon someone who has also been blessed with an insatiable, unconquerable, never-say-die work ethic. Most of the great musicians in this world are blessed with either one or the other, Rudy Perez is the only human being I’ve ever met and worked with who is more talented than anyone else in the room and simultaneously out-works every single person in the room. Just THINK ABOUT THAT for one minute…
And then, as if all that weren’t enough, he is also the humblest, most considerate and loving person in the room! His talent is exceeded only by his generosity and humanity.
Genius is a word that gets thrown around a lot when musicians experience a modicum of success, but for me genius is either defined by the creation of something that has never existed before or by establishing sustained success in a field of endeavor. And Rudy has done BOTH. Every time Rudy took pen to paper and wrote or produced a song, he stood exactly the same chances as every other composer and producer who was writing songs that year and had the means to release them nationally and internationally. With every new song, Rudy started from zero, from nothing. And yet, starting from zero every time Rudy forged success hundreds and hundreds of times writing hundreds of hits and especially, writing over 200 number one songs in his career so far! Think about that number! More than 200 number one songs! Wouldn’t you have quit after 50 and called it a career? But like I said earlier, this is what happens when you put nonstop work ethic together with blinding talent and wrap them up all in one anointed and blessed human being! Rudy Perez doesn’t make the best sounding music you’ve ever heard in order to acquire material gain or accolades from his peers, Rudy continues to make amazing music at a frantic pace because he is incapable of not doing it. Writing hits is what he does, period!! Like Beethoven, like Mozart, like Gershwin, like Cole Porter and Lennon and McCartney, Rudy Perez is music and music is Rudy Perez. He is the thing that defines him.
More then a fantastic family man, a great friend to thousands and an inspirational hero to the rest of the world, he is a living musical and cultural treasure.
By measure of his incredible, mind-numbing accomplishments alone, in 100 years when we are all dust the world will still whisper his name in awe. So why should we wait 100 years to appreciate and celebrate the man standing before us right now? We shouldn’t!!!!
Of all of the wonderful things I’ve been privileged to do in my career as a producer and songwriter in the music industry, working with Rudy has been the highlight of that career! Every time I get to collaborate with him in anyway, no matter how minute, that moment almost always becomes one of my favorite experiences in my career! Because I sincerely appreciate the interest Rudy has taken in my career and all of the wonderful advice he imparts on me every time we get together! You have no idea how much it means to me to have him as a mentor, it is humbling and wonderful all at once! I’ve learned more about music in one afternoon with Rudy at Bullseye Studios with his amazing team of music creators then I have in semesters of instruction at the University of Miami School of Music! When I go to Bullseye studios to work with Rudy, besides doing my job to the extremely high standards that Rudy sets for every single musician that works on his projects, the number one goal I set for myself is to be a sponge and absorb as much as I can from him on the art of creating iconic pop music.
When you are around excellence, it affects you, it instructs you and it inspires you. I know I speak for everyone who is part of Rudy’s music making team when I say that we derive a fantastic sense of pride in helping to bring the life these wonderful compositions that Rudy creates out of thin air for the top artists in the music industry today.
Lastly, if my opinion sounds biased, good! Lol!! That’s because it freaking is! Rudy Perez is the finest producer composer of our time and I am so very proud that I also get to say, he is my dear, dear friend! Not only is my opinion biased, but with more than 600 hit songs of which 200 of them are number one songs, my biased opinion is also 100% correct! The only human being to have ever won Billboard Magazine’s Producer of the Decade in two consecutive decades, 1990- 2000 and again in 2000- 2010, it’s clear to me that my biased opinion is shared by the majority of the world!! Frankly, if I was an artist hoping to record and release a hit song, Rudy would be the first, second, third and hundredth phone call I would make until he agreed to work with me! Lol!! He’s the busiest producer in the industry and sometimes impossible to nail down, but if I was an artist and believed in myself then I would demand the very best for my career! I would demand Rudy Perez!! And you cannot escape the pragmatic logic of one statement: Anyone who has done something successfully 600 times can do it 601 times! 600 hit songs… It boggles the mind!!! Folks, Rudy Perez is simply the best music producer and songwriter working in the music industry today and one of the finest human beings I’ve ever had the pleasure to know. Consider that biased opinion tattooed on my heart and permanently imprinted onto my soul. 🙂
