Paris Toon is the Award-winning lyricist and musical enigma behind Brooklyn born Jazz Soul band Mothers Favorite Child. He is an extraordinary, composer and producer who never seems to stray for a moment from his forward driven vision of success in the music world.
Paris started out as a hip-hop producer in the mid 90's and has done Jazz Soul production and remix work for many different projects during his career. His influences range from Rakim and Stevie Wonder to Sly Stone, Prince and John Lennon. These influences make themselves evident in his compositions and many of the lyrics he writes. As newer artists like D'Angelo, Jill Scott, Adele came about, Paris's inspiration grew in even broader directions while still holding firmly to musical pioneers from the past. His writing style has taken the genres of Soul, Jazz and R&B to a level unfamiliar to most, provoking intense curiosity and appreciation for the "next phase" of Soul music.
