FELISHA BOOKER – BIOGRAPHY

Felisha Booker is the phenom behind a monumental cultural movement that is destined to live in music history.  Born aware of her need to be in and anywhere around great things, Felisha has spent her entire life making the necessary moves to reserve herself a space amongst the entertainment industry’s biggest and best.  Just hitting her mid-thirties, Felisha is most proud of her flagship business Dynamic Producer. Her approach to success is raw, honest, and always real.  She’s a creative thinker and innovator, not stopping at the many challenges that come along with being an entrepreneur.  Booker realizes that in order to win, a fearless prowess must also accompany professional business savvy.

Felisha’s interest in the music industry was born during her time as an A&R representative at UNEM Entertainment Group – an independent record label based in her native Cleveland, Ohio.  Late nights in the studio working side-by-side semi-seasoned producers birthed a desire to create an outlet for aspiring producers with little or no chance of being discovered, which later became Dynamic Producer.  Leaving odd jobs and monotony behind, Felisha moved to New York City to chase after what some would dub an impossible dream from a Midwestern belle with little experience.

Upon her arrival to New York City, Booker was introduced to the reality that obtaining a job in the music industry can be very difficult for a small-time hopeful with no “inside” connections. Having moved to New York with only forty dollars to her name, Felisha knew she would be unable to maneuver and network with her limited funds.  She began temping by day to support the intense networking she would have to do at night in order to kick down the doors. While networking at an industry event she landed a position at Elektra Entertainment Group in 2001. It was at this job that she became unhappy with how the industry mistakenly connects where one is on the hierarchy with their competence. Felisha became further intrigued with the influence that entrepreneurship would have on being able to conquer the business her way. Felisha fearlessly left her job and began frequenting empowerment meetings and industry seminars scoring the connections that would ultimately aid in her efforts in launching her brainchild, Dynamic Producer, followed by Dynamic Songwriter soon thereafter.

After over a decade of success, Booker decided to overhaul the old membership program completely.  “I felt like we could do more.  The industry had changed significantly and I wanted to make sure we were offering the most valuable platform for music makers looking to get ahead” , expresses Booker.  The new vision, Dynamic Producer Professional & Dynamic Songwriter Professional, launched in 2012 by Booker and for the first time anywhere began offering members one on one counseling from a dedicated team of on call music business, production, songwriting and mixing advisors.  To aid from a networking standpoint, the organization also offers music submission opportunities, online showcases and an annual conference featuring known and established producers, songwriters and executives.  Booker has led herself and the organization to receive recognition from both industry professionals and sponsors alike, including: SESAC, Peermusic and Allhiphop just to name a few.  Alumni from the organization have went on to place records with artists such as Mya, Chamillionaire, 50 Cent, Jay-Z, Beyonce and many more.

Dynamic Producer & Dynamic Songwriter are just one fraction of the Booker Empire.  Booker also oversees a boutique music licensing division.  Within the music licensing sector, Dynamic has deals and/or has worked with Viacom Networks including MTV and VH1, Fox Sports Network and Firstcom just to name some.  In November of 2013, Booker launched Channel Dynamic, the online music industry network for emerging music makers.  Channel Dynamic features interviews with working and established musicians, music producers, songwriters, engineers, executives and artists, sharing candid stories of their journey from the bottom to the top.  From tips on how to make better music to advice on how to grow one’s music career or business, Channel Dynamic is a one stop for those looking to advance to their next level by learning from those who’ve come before them.

Felisha’s devotion to all of her crafts guarantees that her massive empire is not far from fruition.
