ACEDAWG: "ACE" OR "ACEDAWG", WALKED AROUND EAST OAKLAND, CA STREETS MAKING BEATS WITH HIS MOUTH AND HANDS ON TABLES IMITATING BIZ MARKIE, DOUGIE FRESH, AND THE FAT BOYS. IT WASN'T UNTIL MICHAEL JACKSON'S "THRILLER" ALBUM THAT ACE REALIZED HE HAD AN EAR FOR MUSIC AND HE WAS MULTI-TALENTED. IN ADDITION TO BEING AN ENTREPRENEUR, ANTHONY SET HIS GOAL TO PUT OUT HIS OWN MUSIC AND LYRICS AT THE AGE OF TEN. INFLUENCED BY MICHAEL JACKSON, MARVIN GAYE, NEW EDITION, TONY TONI TONE, KEITH SWEAT, AL B. SURE, BABYFACE(THE DEAL), GUY, AND OTHERS SEEM TO GIVE HIM THE GUIDANCE HE NEEDED. THEN IN 1991, ACE MOVED TO VIRGINIA BEACH, VA, A MOVE THAT WOULD CHANGE HIS LIFE FOREVER. MOVING FROM A CITY OF WELL KNOWN ACTS LIKE TOO SHORT, DIGITAL UNDERGROUND, AND HAMMER, TO VA BEACH WHERE ONLY TEDDY RILEY WAS KNOWN AT THAT TIME DID NOT BOTHER ACE AT THAT TIME. IT WOULD ONLY MAKE IT HARDER TO BE HEARD BY THE MASSES BECAUSE OF THE LIMITED EXPOSURE. SO ACE DECIDED TO COMBINE EAST AND WEST COAST MUSIC WITH HIS DOWN SOUTH ROOTS TO CREATE HIS OWN SOUND. TURNING POETRY INTO SONGS AND PERFORMING COVER SONGS BY R. KELLY, A SUCCESSFUL PRODUCER/SONGWRITER/SINGER, HE BECAME HIS NEW MODEL TO FOLLOW. IN 1993 ACE HOOKED UP WITH FOUR OTHER GUYS TO CREATE THE SINGING GROUP CALLED "HARMONY" AT THE CAMPUS OF VIRGINIA TECH IN BLACKSBURG, VA. THROUGH 1996 THEY MADE A NAME FOR THEMSELVES BEFORE THEY WENT THEIR SEPARATE WAYS, BUT ACE WAS DETERMINED TO BE SUCCESSFUL. 

SO HE RETURNED HOME TO VA BEACH IN 1996 TO PURSUE HIS DREAM. AFTER PURCHASING A YAMAHA DIGITAL 4-TRACK AND BOSS DR-5 DRUM MACHINE, ACE EXPANDED HIS TALENTS TO ENGINEERING AND PRODUCTION. OTHER EARLY INFLUENCES LIKE DRE, TIMBALAND, J. DUPRI, AND RZA BEGAN TO SHOW THEMSELVES IN HIS MUSIC. THAT ALLOWED ACE TO CONCENTRATE ON INDEPENDENTLY DISTRIBUTING HIS WORK THROUGH LOCAL TALENT BY WRITING AND PRODUCING R&B AND HIP HOP SONGS. Y.Y., BLACK & DECKER (O F D.M.P.), MO, S.O.B.(SLUM LORD KING), V-A-NOM, AND OTHERS GAVE ACE NEEDED EXPOSURE. LOCAL SHOWS AND OPEN MIC EVENTS LIKE JAM LOCKER, WHITE HOUSE CAFE(WORD OF MOUTH), NIGHT MOVES, AND PICASSO' S CREATED AN ATMOSPHERE OF ARTISTS WANTING TO WORK WITH "ACE". SINGING BACKUP FOR S.O.B., WHO OPENED FOR REDMAN /KRS-1 /AKANELLE, IN 1997 AT THE HAMPTON CONVOCATION CTR. ADDED 1ST MACEOR ACCOMPLISHMENT TO HIS RESUME. STARTING HIS OWN COMPANY IN 1998, "ACE DAWG PRODUCTIONS" HAS CREATED A NAME FOR ITSELF IN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. A RECENT COMMERCIAL FOR THE "NORFOLK NIGHTHAWKS" 18-WEEK SEASON AIRED ON FOX IN APRIL 2001 DURING THE PRE GAME SHOW ON SATURDAYS. TRACKS ARE ALSO BEING USED FOR LOCAL RADIO HOST TO TALK OVER AND PLENTY OF SONGS HAVE BEEN HEARD ON 103 JAMZ(WOWI), 91.1FM (WNSB) NORFOLK STATE RADIO, AND 92.1FM (THE BEAT). THROUGH THE WORLD WIDE WEB, "ACE DAWG" HAS PUBLISHED MANY LOCAL ARTISTS ON MP3.COM FOR HIS PUBLISHING COMPANY, ANTHONY J. MUSIC(ASCAP). MANY ARTISTS, DJ'S, AND INDEPENDENT LABELS HAVE SHOWN INTEREST IN ACE DAWG'S WORK IN THE U.S. AND OVERSEAS IN ENGLAND, ITALY, GERMANY, ANY AUSTRALIA. THE GOAL NOW IS TO LAND A MAJOR DISTRIBUTION AND/OR PUBLISHING DEAL SO "ACE" CAN FULLY EXPAND HIS TALENTS 24 HORS A DAY , 7 DAYS A WEEK.
