Artist Dave Skillz (David Boyd) was born in Atlanta Georgia on June 22,
1987. He began writing music at the age of 13 when he met a group of
artist who were doing their own music. While perfecting his craft and
becoming better he later needed original beats opposed to recording
over just industry instrumentals. Producers were pricing beats that weren't in his budget, so around the age of 16 or 17 he started making his own beats. Spending money out of his own pocket to get studio time; Skillz was also working two jobs trying to save enough money for decent studio equipment. He then joined the U.S Navy and while serving he saved enough money to buy and build his own home studio. Skillz learned how to mix and audio engineer vocals from being in studios and
watching youtube tutorials. Skillz began recording himself with a professional sound quality. Skillz has released several albums/mix-tapes and continuing to be the best he can and a known statement in the music industry today.
