About ShottyGunz Beatz:
ShottyGunz Beatz (born. Travis Gerald Schave) was born in Howard Community Hospital in Kokomo, IN on 23rd October, 1990. His first memory he can recall is watching Yo MTV Raps with the Geto Boys “Mind Playin Trick On Me” video playing. Raised in a very musicial household, with multiple family member already playing instruments. Childhood was filled with the sounds of Motown, 70s and 80s Rock N Roll, Hip Hop, Modern R&B, Jazz, and Classical music.
In the 3rd grade, at a music teachers request he joined the school band as a snare drummer. Unfortuently, with family issues, school problems, and his grandmother getting sick he dropped out of the band. After his grandmother passed he needed a way to express himself musically.
After hearing Notorious B.I.G.’s “Ready To Die” album the first time he wanted to be a DJ just like DJ Premier. When he asked his mother for the equipment she replied that, “We just don’t have the money”. Still this burning urge to do music was strong. With that urge he found the most abundant thing around the house, pencils and paper. ShottyGunz Beatz started to write raps.
His first recording was on a small Home Alone tape recorder he got for Christmas one year and a boombox full of beats. In 100 degree tempatures, hours straight, he managed to record his first 2 songs on cassette.
After the introduction of home recording software and producing local artists he needed custom beats. Since no producers on Soundclick would not return his emails he began creating beats himself on Fruity Loops demo version. It took him 6 months to learn how to actually put a beat together and render it into MP3 format.
His first beat sales came in 2004 and the rest is history. Now ShottyGunz Beatz has been a Top Charting Soundclick producer and has worked with 100’s of artists of a decade.
