Tearce Kizzo (NL)
It al started when he had the opportunity to play as a studio musician for the Dutch artist ‘Lloyd de Meza’ ( known from his single ‘Niemand Weet’ ) when he was 16 years old. After this he discovered that he also had the talent to make beats and he started to work with Dutch producer ‘Mitch Crown’ ( who taught him the ways to go in music ). Together they produced a few songs on the album ‘Mijn Diamand’ of ‘Lloyd de Meza’ that was released in 2006. His talent got noticed by Niels Walboomers ( Walboomer Music ) and at the age of 18 he signed a publishing and management deal with the Dutch Entertainment company Walboomers Music. He kept on making national and international productions and worked with well known national artists (Lange Frans & Baas B, Lloyd de Meza, Fouradi, THC, Ali B, Maj Farah, Esmee Denters, Debrah Jade, Tania Christopher & Eva Simons) and international artists and producers/songwriters ( Greg Curtis, Petey Pablo, Jermaine Paul, Macho Psycho en Steph Jones ). He even managed to gain a few national top 100 hits, including his first single ‘De Leipe Bauer Flavor’ featuring Lange Frans, Ali B and Frans Bauer. Besides that, he also produces the Dutch title song ‘Show Me’ of Youtube star Tania Christopher for the Hollywood movie ‘Step Up 2’. Guided by Niels Walboomers (Walboomers Music) and in his earlier years by Tony Scott, Johan ’t Hart, Örjan Graafmans and inspired by well known artists and producers such as: Alicia Keys, Brian Michael Cox, Danjahandz, Darkchild, Timbaland, Run DMC, Stevie Wonder and Herbie Hancock, Tearce is convinced that he can make it as a producer both nationally and internationally: ‘Music brings out the best in me, and I’m very motivated to do what I can do best, and that is producing’. His motivation got rewarded, at the beginning of April 2009 the song ‘Silly Boy’ (which he produced) got leaked on Youtube as the new song of Lady GaGa and Rihanna. The song had over 4 million views, and after it was clear that it wasn’t Lady GaGa or Rihanna on the track but the Dutch singer Eva Simons, she was offered a worldwide deal on Capitol records.
