Grammy Nominee Coming to Campus
The Singer Songwriter Club at SUNY Oneonta will present a master class and workshop by hip-hop and R&B producer Anthony “Twilite Tone” Khan, on Dec. 3. The Chicago-based producer, whose work on Kanye West’s 2012 song “Mercy” earned him a 2013 “Best Rap Song” Grammy nomination, has worked with artists such as John Legend, Common, Kendrick Lamar and Pusha T. He will share his experiences and expertise with students through a series of events in Room M201 of the Fine Arts Building.
“I am extremely enthusiastic to be in conversation with students around the subject of creative songwriting and its place in the music industry and our lives,” said Tone. “The art of creative songwriting not only serves the marketplace as entertainment but also creates the possibility of inspiring and moving people to their purpose thus ultimate freedom.”
Assistant Professor Anthony Scafide of the college’s Music Department says Tone is an artist of the highest caliber. “Tone represents the absolute cutting-edge possibility and talent of what a contemporary songwriter needs to know about collaborating, creating and breaking new ground with songwriting in today’s competitive recording environment.”
The Singer Songwriter Club at SUNY Oneonta is dedicated to providing its members with opportunities to meet and learn from the music industry’s leading-edge artists and to create a professional relationship between talented, emerging songwriters and music industry professionals.
