There are 3 types of people in this world who do 1 of the following: People who watch things happen, let things happen and make things happen. Ask Jeff “Braintrax” Henderson and he will tell you that he is someone who makes things happen (by creating opportunities for him self). Born and raised in the San Francisco bay area, Braintrax got his introduction early on in music at 5 years old. Starting off with choir classes, violin and recorder, he found a passion and love for the power of sound and music and its effect on people. Growing up, he was introduced to various styles of music including classical, soul, pop rock and hip-hop through his friends and immediate family. In 5th grade his mother bought him his first keyboard to further explore his love and creation of music. By teaching himself chords and melody (and also dabbling in writing poetry which later became songs) he was on his way to pursuing a start to a career. Continuing choir and intro piano through out middle and high school, he decided to take his talents to the next level. While in college he saved enough money to purchase his first production keyboard and began creating original pieces as a hobby and giving beats away to friends who wrote lyrics over them. With influences such as Quincy Jones, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Dr. Dre and the Neptunes, he began finding his own sound and writing more. Through his natural networking abilities he began learning his craft as well as the industry and linked up with his mentor Art Herman of Zip records who showed him the ins-and-outs of this fast paced biz. Fast forward several years, a few LP’s, live shows, and music placements on A&E and MTV and you will find Braintrax, now 28, still busy collabing with various artists and placing himself to be one of the in demand producers of the moment. Feel free to jump on the train and enjoy the ride as Braintrax continues to make good music for music lovers of all kind and make his way to the top. All aboard!!
