Sparks Fly at S.O.I. Talent Management Firm
Grammy Award winning music and visual artist, Bobby Sparks II may best be known for his work as a co-producer and live/studio sideman to Marcus Miller, Lalah Hathaway, Roy Hargrove and Kirk Franklin, but with this new relationship the brand, “Bobby R. Sparks II” will move forward toward the spotlight.
“Mr. Sparks has a proven track record with live and studio credits that span world-wide. To date, he’s worked with gospel superstar, Kirk Franklin for over twenty years. That’s a loyalty that can’t be denied and the type of character we look for in the artists we represent… Bobby and I have had the pleasure of knowing of each other for years, but connected completely by chance at the Blue Note in Milan, [Italy] last summer and that started the ball rolling toward a mutual appreciation of what we could bring to the table for each other,” states D. Knagui Giddins of S.O.I. Talent Management Firm.
“This is the first time I’ve done anything like this, but I trust this guy because we want the same things… not just for me, but for music,” says Bobby Sparks II. “The sky’s the limit!”
