Today we’d like to introduce you to OGT Hernandez.
Hi OGT, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
G’s 1st Studios started with a laptop and a mic roughly 15 years ago. I started as an artist making music in my living room. I have always been into music since childhood, and many of my relatives are musicians, so I guess it runs in the blood. I went on an adventure to see if my music could get me on stage to perform in front of a live audience, and it did. I immediately started paying attention to the “business” end of the music scene. I started making a do’s and don’ts list. Then I noticed that you had to empty your pockets for ten minutes on stage as an artist. Outrageous! So I went on a mission to create a label that would allow me to put local artists with talent on stage with big names to get their drive and confidence up so that we can have more artists making it in the business. I continue to rock the stages myself. It’s addicting, and the more I get on stage, the more I want to be up there. But many local artists are so amazing it only makes sense to allow the world to see them. To this Day, G’s 1st Studios continues to throw great shows and create great opportunities for artists. Y sabes que? We aren’t going anywhere, aye!! G’s 1st baby!!
Can you talk to us about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Not a smooth road. You always have to be careful who you do business with and pay attention to people’s intentions. Not everyone is out to see you do better. You have to be strong-minded and not allow any failures or what other individuals say to derail you, It is tough, and there will be plenty of times you will feel like wanting to quit, but if you hang in there and keep working hard, believe me when I tell you it all pays off at the end. And that’s what I did.
Great, so let’s talk business. Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
G’s 1st Studios is the Q record label I (OGT) built from the ground up. Here we record, produce music, mix and master music, show promotions, merchandising, and much more! G’s 1st Studios is known for our different styles in music creation and for the dope-ass shows, we throw. We are also known for putting local artists on stages with big names to help boost music careers. We work with anyone who shows interest and always work with the artist to perfect their craft.
What sets us apart from others is we compete with no one. We have a vision, and regardless of how different or challenging the journey is, we always keep pushing and putting on for our city!! I am most proud of how we can help artists with their craft. Whether it is with the promotion or in the studio, we built strong relationships because of it and continue doing so. You can find us on all platforms G’s 1st Studios!! Facebook G’s 1st Studios, Instagram @geezfirststudios, Spotify, Itunes and Youtube!
Have you learned any interesting or important lessons due to the Covid-19 Crisis?
