Terrace Martin is an American musician, rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, and actor from Los Angeles, California. He is a missing link between the world of jazz music and the world of hip-hop culture. Well known on the one side as a producer of revolutionary Kendrick Lamar’s albums, and on the other side as a sideman and producer for Herbie Hancock.
He is perhaps best known for producing records for several prominent artists in the music industry, including Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, The Game, Busta Rhymes, Stevie Wonder, and Raphael Saadiq. Terrace also worked alongside jazz heavyweights like Herbie Hancock, Kamasi Washington, Christian Scott or Robert Glasper. Martin is a multi-instrumentalist, whose music production embodies everything from funk and jazz to classical and soul. Martin released seven studio albums, and the last two ‘Velvet Portraits’ and ‘Sounds Of Crenshaw Vol. 1’ on his newly formed label, Sounds of Crenshaw Records, through Ropeadope Records.
