Scott Storch

Scott Spencer Storch is a Canadian entertainment mogul, hip hop, pop, and R&B record producer, arranger, keyboardist, and instrumentalist of Jewish descent.
Storch is the son of a court reporter and a singer. He eventually moved to Cherry Hill, New Jersey where he became the keyboard player for the Philadelphia hip-hop band The Roots, he played keyboards for other Philly artists including Schoolly Doug and Gordy Cee.
Storch began experimenting with his own productions by making beats for The Roots. He then left the band and learned more about the art of making beats by working with Dr. Dre and Timbaland. After leaving The Roots, Storch's sound and style became more commercial. Storch is now one of the most in demand hip-hop producers today, working on beats for a wide variety of artists. Unlike many of his contemporaries (Kanye West & 9th Wonder), Storch rarely uses samples in his beats, preferring to compose all parts himself.
