Meet Allen Cadet-Civil

Today we’d like to introduce you to Allen Cadet-Civil.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Allen. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Well, I’m originally from West Palm, I was raised by my Grandmother and I was always intrigued by music from a very young age. It all starts with playing “hot cross buns” on a recorder. My teacher at the time saw how much I love his class, so he told my grams that I continue and find other instruments to play. So at the age of seven, I started playing drums at church. This is around the same time I started playing cello over at my elementary. I Continue to do that thru middle school but instead of playing cello, I switch over to the upright bass at the end of my middle school years. I also was part of the wind band from the start of seventh grade year til I left at the end of my eighth-grade year. But at that time, I wasn’t too involved in making my own sound.

The music I listened to at the time was straight rap and trap music and some RnB. I mean I was listening to Wake. I was listening to Gucci, chief keef, when he first came out. The Migos peewee long way, alongside Kendrick Lamar, Kid Cudi, Kanye, Drake, Odd future when they were still OFWGDGAF with Mello Hype. Let at the time those were my go to’s. Still, to this day, some of the albums the same me as a musician has been Take Care by Drake, Radical by Odd future, Man on the Moon Kid Cudi, and Section 80 by Kendrick Lamar. Life did change for me towards the end of my 8th-grade year when me and my grams had to move out of our apartment and we were in a sense homeless for a couple of months but we lived with a family friend.

Around that same time, I got accepted into Dreyfoos and figured out at my audition that I had this thing called perfect pitch. Having perfect pitch is… how can I simplify this, it when you can know what key a songs in are know what exact note that being played at the exact time without having to pull out a piano to figure it out. So that has been an asset to my music career that I didn’t even know I had. So in My ninth grade year, I started cooking up beats on the computer at school. My Jazz director let me stay in his classroom after school just so I can experiment. I started working on the garage band then quickly moved up to logic.

Then I went ahead later on during my sophomore year and got fl studio. This how made my beats when I didn’t have the room. This room also became my safe haven; it let me run away anything and everything I had going on at the time. I called it Hern room because it was Mr. Pedro Hernadez, who basically added fuel to the fire, not just with letting me use his room for making beat but introducing me to jazz and opened my ears even more. Along the way, I’ve met an artist that I consider my day ones. Guys like. Kyle “Telly” Tellez, Matthew “Tweet” George, Josh ‘Peter Flavor” Johnson Sam “Suave” PDJ Amani “Omar” Baptise, Dustin Hill and Polo Gang. These guys are guys that help me get to the point that I’m at.

Now I’m currently based in Tallahassee because I go to Florida State University,🍢🍢 where I not only produce but I engineer for other artists and myself. I now work alongside Telly, TY-44, Tweet and a new homie COSMIC. I go by the name RTILLERY a name given to me by a childhood friend. That’s the spark notes to my story. 🙏🏾🙏🏾

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
No, in fact, it has not been, aside from trying to find my sound and finding people to mess with what got going on, it’s hard. My biggest struggle is that I try to out due myself and I’m always competing with myself to get better. But how can you tell you if you’re getting better with no recognition from your peers. Money was also a factor so learned very quickly that had to do what wanted to do with what I got because if could do it with just a laptop and some headphones and with the stock plugins on what DAW I was using when I got what want I would be able to do so much more.

Can you give our readers some background on your music?
My business is making good music. I specialize in producing and mixing and mastering vocals. I’ve also started to write for other artists as well. I’m also a live performer, so I play with FSU’s Philharmonia and I am also one of the Jazz combos for the school. Most of my Music work outside of Church and School are freelanced work.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
I plan on being part of major labels and also running my own record label that won’t just be for musical artist but that will be a safe space for any future creators they follow me and that will do bigger and better things than me.

Pricing:

  • I charge 35.00 for personalized beat.
