Prada G | Johnstown Magazine
Local music gurus are teaming up to help young people in the community find a way to thrive in the industry.
Timothy Odum opened his first recording studio in 2006, giving musicians of all ages the opportunity to record their music.
Odum started out as a producer with a love for music that has grown into an outlet for others with a similar passion. He brought together three different studios and worked with artists of all musical genres and skill levels.
Today, as a musical engineer, he is focusing on his latest project – Prada G Studios, located in the West End area of Johnstown.
The studio, created by Odum and Jason India, targets local youth to give them a platform to become professional musicians and create content for inspired musical artists.
“I know how difficult it is for musical artists in the region to be successful, so I want to help give them an opportunity, ”said Odum.
India and Odum have hands-on experience across all categories of the entertainment industry and Prada G. Studios offers everything from custom beats, from music and photography recording time to video production and more.
India spent time in major recording studios and had access to private sessions with artists signed by major labels. He has also filmed numerous live concerts and shared the stage with popular artists – including Wiz Khalifa, Flo Rida, Nicki Minaj, Trey Songz, French Montana, Joell Ortiz, Yomo, Da La Ghetto and Tony Diaz.
India now offers videos and photographs to local artists looking to make themselves known.
Artist development is something that motivates India to work with young talent.
“Dedication is hard, but it’s a major key to getting your dreams out of the safe, ”he says.
Joshaway Odum, also known as PradaBaby, collaborates with his father as a member of Prada G Studios. PradaBaby, a professional urban artist signed to Taz Taylor’s Internet Money, has ties to major music industries and brings his experience and knowledge to the project.
Odum and India also thank music producers Cam With AK and Tkay, who work with them at the studio.
The studio offers a plethora of creative rooms, including a recording booth, videography and photography room, and space for future podcast production. Their logo and their red, black and white colors bring a strong affirmation to the brand.
Prada G Studios is currently looking for talented young people in the area. All submissions can be sent to [email protected]
