Eyes closed, the engineer relaxes into thought, carefully constructing part by part from bare essentials. The world of the inventor declares no task impossible; the only limitations are those imposed by the mind of the creator. Motivated by an insatiable entrepreneurial spirit, the musician seeks and finds those of like mind and challenges them to reach their full potential. The visionary sees the future of entertainment media as a symphony of music, technology and art. A talented performer and vocalist seeks connection with his audience through engaging lyrics and extraordinary composition. NICK VIDO awakens to a life colored by his dream and soars with the promise of creation.
Born in a small Midwestern town, Nicholas Vidovich is the first-generation native-born son of an immigrant steelworker. His family of blue collar workers is, and always has been, innately driven by the entrepreneurial promise of the "American Dream." By witnessing his father's successful business pursuits, Nicholas established a solid foundation for the development of his own endeavors. As the President and CEO of Vidovich Enterprises Limited, Nicholas, a professional Software Engineer, combined his talents with the incomparable musical compositions created by noteworthy producer SINATRA. Together with Spaceship Seven Records, the duo, known as Braindouble, set out to re-invent the world of interactive entertainment using 3D animation, state-of-the-art video production, and artificially intelligent software.
The average 21-year old is excited to purchase alcohol. The typical 22-year old may experience some anxiety as life-after-college nears. However, at the age of twenty two, the producer, artist and CEO of Chief Execs Entertainment, Demetrius Howard (a/k/a "Sinatra") is well past average and far from typical. His peers may have been enjoying their adolescence, but this Columbus, Ohio resident was honing his productions skills and refining his artistic and professional business plans. Nowadays, the only thing that can match this young entrepreneur's business acumen is his musical production. According to TheCypherColumbus.com: "While most hip-hop fans can listen to a song and instantly recognize a Neptunes, Timbaland, or Mannie Fresh beat, Sinatra is one producer you can't pin down."
For Sinatra, becoming a local all-star was a good start, but now he is targeting exposure on a major level. He has produced mixtape projects for numerous artists and his production is featured on over a dozen mixtape projects throughout Ohio. He released "The Golden Child" Street Album in May 2007 to rave reviews. In July 2007, his self-produced track entitled "Restless" (featuring Jim Jones) was featured on HipHopGame.com. Never one to rest on accolades, he has recently has worked with Willie the Kid, Freeway, Chubbie Baby, and has production on Juelz Santana's upcoming album.
Making strides at an early age is in his blood. Born in Akron, Ohio, his mother gave birth to him at the age of 14. With a grandmother battling an addiction, the pair moved to Columbus to seek a better life. Both the emotion in Sinatra's music and his relentless business acumen can be viewed as reflections of two extremes: his biological father being shot and killed in 2002 and his mother successfully graduating from college. Sinatra prides himself on being "ahead of the class and ahead of the curve". He has been making beats since age 13 and started writing rhymes at the age of 15. With two young parents, his musical upbringing was molded by what many call the "Golden Era" of hip hop, citing A Tribe Called Quest, Native Tongues and Nas as major influences. Inspired by the role Michael '5000' Watts played in Houston's developing scene, the producer/rapper/CEO aims to do the same in Columbus. "I want to be the first person who really is responsible for Columbus having a general respect as far as music is concerned." Given his already budding track record and promising learning curve, he is well on his way.
