Changing it up a bit

I know I have been consistent with this three people to a blog theme; however, today, I’m going to stick with two multi-talented men: JQue and Eman

Patrick Michael Smith, aka J. Que, could be considered a hodgepodge producer and songwriter. He is a fan of all genres and has worked with such artists as Fantasia, Usher, Avant, Chris Brown, Bryan-Michael Cox, Keri Hilson, Tricky Stewart, Chris Brown, Lil Jon, Antonio Dixon, Adonis, Eric Dawkins, and Jordan Knight, to name a few. Yes, there’s my connection to J. Que. He along with a number of other songwriters and producers are helping Jordan with his new CD. He also has the honor of being a Grammy nominee, a BET nominee and a BMI nominee. J. Que currently works with the Clutch production company and can be found as an active tweeter at To hear some of the music he has either cowritten or produced, check out his myspace page at

Emanuel Kiriakou, although a tongue twister to say, is a very talented singer, songwriter, instrumentalist and producer. I first learned about him when he collaborated with Joey McIntyre on his album, “One Too Many: Live from New York”. Eman accompanied Joe with his guitar and background vocals and also allowed Joey to sing “Falling”, a song that was later recorded by Eman on The Skulls Motion Picture Soundtrack in 2000. Eman began in music learning Greek songs. That knowledge would later help him to write and perform all the music heard in the movie, “My Fat Greek Wedding”. Today, Eman has to his credit numerous artists for whom he has either cowritten or produced a song. He has earned an ASCAP award and a Clio award, and many of the songs he has either written or produced have hit the top ten in their respective categories. You can learn more about Eman on his myspace page: or find him on twitter at
