Harvey Mason, Jr. has penned and produced songs for superstars and industry legends. Everyone from Beyonce to Aretha Franklin, Justin Timberlake to Elton John, Chris Brown to Luther Vandross, and Britney Spears to Whitney Houston have called on Harvey to deliver uniquely musical yet radio friendly hit records. “I think one of the reasons artist and execs like what I do is because I try and make every song specifically for that artist,” says Harvey. He has used that philosophy in his work with many of the American Idols, including Jordin Sparks and her single “No Air”, a duet featuring Chris Brown, which topped the Billboard charts in 2008.
Major motion picture studios such as Dreamworks and Paramount Pictures have called upon Harvey’s talent to produce soundtracks for films like Bobby, Shrek 3, and Kung Fu Panda. Most notably, Harvey produced the soundtrack to the Academy Award winning film Dreamgirls, which won the Critic’s Choice Award in 2008 for best soundtrack.
In addition to music, Harvey has ventured into movie production. His first feature length film, More Than A Game, is a documentary about the incredible journey of a high school basketball team whose most notable player happened to be Lebron James. The film won first runner up at the 2008 Toronto Film Festival and will be released theatrically by Lionsgate Films in the fall of 2009.
As an elected member of the Los Angeles Chapter of the Recording Academy (NARAS), Harvey has guest lectured at Grammy Camp and participated in Grammy in the Schools, and the Music Cares Foundation. Artists Harvey has worked with have been nominated for countless Grammy awards for work he has written and produced. In addition, he has been nominated for three Grammy Awards for his work with Justin Timberlake, Toni Braxton and the soundtrack for Dreamgirls.
