Rio Chi – Began working in music at 18 and wanted to be an A&R, after going to NYC, Rio worked at Universal Records. After coming back to London for his studies Rio realised that he didn’t want to be an A&R. So he began managing an artist and started building his network with radio DJ’s and Marketers. ‘It started to open my creative doors which I always kept closed due to the lack of confidence in performance.’ After joining a band, things didn’t work out and Rio went solo. He then met Johnny Douglas, this helped him to develop his skills and the basis of production as well as being invited to work and write with various artists. Johnny’s teaching and mentorship helped Rio to locate ‘the confidence to step back from the keyboard and MPC and step closer to the microphone.’
