Episode: Kimball Hooker
Kimball began his musical journey at the young age of 12 and he was in the church when it 1st hit him. He loved the snap of the drums and the feeling it gave him. Then he was so inspired to play, so his parents bought him a drum set of his own and he played on his back porch all hours of the day and night while listening to the radio songs trying to repeat what he heard. After he was good enough to play at a comfortable level he was in several local bands in the neighborhood of San Jose. Soon after high school he moved to Minneapolis Minnesota with some high school buddies and he played in a local band called “The Rude Boys” and played in local clubs: First Ave, The Roxy, The Capri Theatre, Mississippi Live, The Fine Line and Powder Horn Park.
When he returned to the bay area in the early 90’s, his whole world changed and he began recording and song writing. So he bought a studio and attended Pyramind Sound in San Francisco and learned how to engineer using Pro Tools, Cubase and other great recording/editing software . He also directed a short video for Black Nate Debiase and Chuy from KMEL did the voice over for (The Natrix video clip called -Unstoppable) and it was shown on B.E.T.
Artists he have played with: Cindy Herron of the multi-platinum 90’s group R&B group “EnVogue”, Jazz legend “Eddie Gale”, R&B old school artist “Gloria Scott”, Blues man “Kenny Neal”, Ron E. Beck of “Tower of Power”, HipHop Rapper & Producer “ProHoeZak”, Double Funk Crunch, The Funky Fresh Band, Pinkie & Blind Resistance, Mike Osborn Band and many other great artists.
He recently produced a new CD for R&B soul singer Gloria Scott. This was her first debut release since 1974 produced by the late great legendary Barry White.
