JOE DIRT BIO
for music since he was a young boy. Growing up amongst musicians, he realized early that he loved the sound of music. Not having any instruments of his own he would use his family’s kitchen table in Puerto Rico as a platform, day after day starting at a young age creating beats. Being raised in a low income family where his mother had to struggle just to make ends meet, Joe Dirt knew the one thing that always kept him at ease was music, in any form. Creating the sound gave him tranquility. Even while growing up, while living through the rough neighborhoods and problems that appeared, his passion never faded away. He started playing random instruments in Church, at school and at different youth organizations. Joe Dirt found the ability to play instruments instantly. Without any formal training while growing up, he was always asked to play at local functions. Even while attending church, playing drums always seemed to be a daily routine.
Throughout several years, Joe Dirt started making beats on a small piano, then started recorded himself as well as others on an old microphone that barely worked, but somehow it sounded good. He was mixing songs together day after day. Creating his own beats while placing his recorded music exactly how it should be. Dr. Dre was and has always been a role model for him. He had always been a perfectionist so that was something he always strived for and excepted nothing less. He started purchasing everything for his work station which over the years turned into his studio.
After multiple recordings and his passion to succeed he founded Rich House Productions. He showcased his Artists at the main stage at the First Annual Cuban Festival in Chicago, has created multiple albums and has Produced multiple East and West Coast artists including Taj Mahal, SoundBoy & Get Gwop and has worked with Inspectah Deck, Capone & Noriega.
