Prince Ama; met Skip Martin for the first time when Prince Ama was performing at the Freaking Frog in Las Vegas. After the show Skip told Prince Ama that he had a project in mind for him. So they went into the and Skip presented the idea for ‘Doctor Dance’ to be about awareness for childhood obiesity and diabities. Prince loved the idea and after a short studio session they pulled together the song “Can You Whine” and recorded the video for the song. When talking about the veteran Grammy winning artist Prince stated “Skip Martin is a very good people so we just start talking and the rest is history – scene”
Antoine Lovon from Palmaraise Magazine once said “With his provocative dancehall music and unique blend of Afro-Reggae, Prince Ama brings his original flavor of music like never heard before. With his high energy and non-stop dancing, Prince Ama gets the crowd fired up and them takes the stage to deliver his greatest hits. It’s a performance like never seen before.”
Galaxxy Quuen; a singer born and raised in Las Vegas but lived in London, and L.A. Tells us she met Skip Martin thru a friend and they worked on a couple of previous projects. One day Skip was in the studio and asked GQ to come by and listen to the “can you whine” track. So she came through and listened to the track and pretty much free-styled her verse. The funniest part is Skip would ask ”what was that line you just said?” and GQ replied “I don’t know im free styling.”
Galaxxy Quuen is currently working on several projects. “I’m a songwriter and singer so I enjoy writing for other mainstream artists and also tv shows. I have songs placed on shows dating back to The L Word on Showtime, Burn Notice on USA and now Kevin Harts Real Husbands of Hollywood. Ive also got the chance to work with Paul Mitchell and provide songs for their show The Gathering and charitable shows.”
