Flinstone had a very similar musical up bringing. Hailing from Tucson, Arizona, while still in high school, Flinstone met Harvey Mason of the Underdogs, best known for songs such as Mario’s “How Could You”, Omarion’s “O” and “Dream Girls Soundtrack”. He was the first artist signed to Harvey, and under Harvey’s Direction he was to sign a deal with MCA Records; but due to changes in the company Flinstone got lost in the shuffle, and decided to nurture his desire to produce music. Now with Harvey teaming up with Damon Thomas of the Underdogs, Flint was producing on such projects as RL from Next, and Kevon Edmonds.
Flinstone states “Working with Harvey and Damon was amazing, a lot of long hours, music production, and great work ethics” It was like a factory, If you worked hard, then the result would be great music”.
It was these work ethics and great music that led Flinstone to work with Warryn Campbell known for mega Gospel artist “Mary, Mary”. With these heavy hitters under his belt, he only worked harder to utilize the gifts in which he was given and fate would have it that he met Lisa while working with Soul Shock & Karlin. Together they worked hard writing, singing, and producing songs, for Soul Shock and Karlin. Flinstone was the first producer to have a co-production song with the duo for the Fantasia song that he and Lisa co-wrote entitled “Said I wouldn’t, No More”
It was a great experience for me, because the guys are so open to different ideas, and it allowed for creativity to be the catalyst. It also gave me time to sing again on some of the songs, by Lisa producing my vocals, which is something that a lot of people don’t know, that both Lisa and I sing all the demos for our songs, there are times where we feel like we may want a certain sound vocally, so we may use another vocalist to demo it, but majority of the time it’s us working as one self-contained unit; but, at the same time we know and understand that you can’t just be in your own world, so it’s good to work with other creative people, because you never know what you may learn, and there is always room for growth in anything that you do” “Our main goal is to make sure that each song that we do, represents what everyday people are feeling”
