As far as Paul “Willie Green” Womack is concerned, it’s all about the drums. Raised in a musical family, Willie Green got his first drum machine at the age of eight, accompanied by a Casio keyboard and has been making records ever since.
By fifteen, Green was part of his uncle’s R&B/Reggae band, playing the drums in clubs he was not even old enough to legally patronize. A lifelong passion for hip-hop music gained its first serious outlet while Green was attending Berklee College Of Music in Boston. He would graduate with a degree from the Music Production & Engineering department, as well as a burgeoning reputation in the Boston underground scene as a talented beatsmith and sureshot engineer.
In 2007 Green moved to Brooklyn, NY and since he has worked with a who’s who of mainstream and independent hip-hop; building up a production and engineering resume that includes Wiz Khalifa, The Roots, Roc Marciano, Open Mike Eagle, Billy Woods, and Murs among others. Along with his hip-hop work, Green has also worked in the R&B and Gospel worlds, working with artists such as Donnie McClurkin, Valerie Simpson, Corina Corina and Barrie McLain.
Building on this foundation, Willie’s new album Doc Savage is the culmination of the past five years – combining a wide range of influence with his mastery of hip-hop to create an epic featuring some of the finest in independent music including Milo, Denmark Vessey, the aforementioned Open Mike Eagle and Billy Woods among many more. Inspired by the sci-fi retrofuturism of its 1930’s namesake, “Doc Savage” pushes the boundaries of convention.
Dedicated to the art of making records, Willie Green has become synonymous with quality music making. Whether it be production, mixing, or mastering, Green maintains the highest possible standards, and the results of that dedication show through his work.
