As far as Paul "Willie Green" Womack is concerned, it's all about the drums.
The youngest child in a musical family, Paul “Willie Green” Womack got his first drum machine at the age of eight, accompanied by a Casio keyboard and has been making records ever since.
Since I didn't have a mixer, I used to tape two sets of headphones together so I could make beats with the drum machine and keyboard at the same time. Since I didn't have a four-track, I took two boom-boxes, would record the drums on one, then play that back, record that and the keys on the other.
By fifteen, Green was part of his uncle’s R&B/Reggae band, playing the drums in clubs he was not even old enough to legally patronize. A lifelong passion for hip-hop music gained its first serious outlet while Green was attending Berklee College Of Music in Boston. He would graduate with a degree from the Music Production & Engineering department, as well as a burgeoning reputation in the Boston underground scene as a talented beatsmith and sureshot engineer. Still, it was not until relocating to Brooklyn in mid 2007 that the ball really started rolling.
Since the move he has worked with a who's who of mainstream and independent hip-hop, building up a production and engineering resume that includes Wiz Khalifa, The Roots Cannibal Ox, Reks, Roc Marciano, Open Mike Eagle, billy woods, and Murs among others. Along with his hip-hop work, Green has also worked in the R&B and Gospel worlds, working with artists such as Donnie McClurkin, Corina Corina and Barrie McLain.
Dedicated to the art of making records, Willie Green has become synonymous with quality music making. Whether it be production, mixing, or mastering, Green maintains the highest possible standards, and the results of that dedication show through his work.
Green continues his work with his studio located in Brooklyn, New York while also working closely with the International Audio Engineering Society as a frequent speaker and panelist for the annual Audio Engineering Society’s Pro Audio Convention and now the Hip Hop and R&B Chair for the AES New York Chapter. Green also recently presented as a main panelist alongside Tony Masterati at the New York Mix Con 2019 at the Manhattan Center.
