Tim Coons (L) and Howie Dorough (R)
Atlantic Hill Music Founder & CEO Tim Coons recently finished producing Backstreet Boys member Howie Dorough’s newest solo album, entitled "Howie D. - Live From Toronto".
Tim states, “It was really great to be working with
Howie on this special music project. I have known Howie since he was a teenager back when I was heavily involved with the Backstreet Boys during their beginning years. Howie Dorough has always been very gracious to work with. He is the consummate professional in everything that he sets out to do. I am glad the "Howie D. - Live From Toronto" album has been received so positively. Howie really has an opportunity to showcase his amazingly smooth voice on this particular solo album of his. A few years back, Howie and I had a tremendous amount of fun doing a record together that eventually went on to become number one and achieved platinum status in the Philippines named “I'll Be There”, a duet with Howie and Asian superstar Sarah Geronimo. It was actually the most recognized single of Sarah's album "Just Me”, which achieved platinum status back in 2008, something that Howie and I are both very proud of."
Tim remains close with the Backstreet Boys on both a personal and professional level, and always enjoys his time working with them in the recording studio. Tim was the original music producer and vocal coach for the group.

When Saagar Ace stood in front of a microphone in a sound proof studio to record his first song, there was no nervous anticipation, his heart was not racing, his palms were not sweaty. The music echoed in his headphones and he was off singing with his pure, classic voice. This was home! Saagar has always wanted to create music and record songs. “Singing comes naturally to me. My Mom tells me that I could sing before I could talk.”
Ever since he was a kid, people have remarked on his singing talent. “My kindergarten teacher told my parents after my first performance as a 5 year old that I was going to become a singing star.” His parents enrolled him to Suzuki violin classes when he was 5. The Suzuki “mother-tongue” method of teaching music trained Saagar's ear to discern musical notes and made him appreciate the wonder of music. “I was humming Bach and Mozart melodies before I knew who they were.” In high school he has kept singing in choirs, chorals, and a capella groups. He has performed solos in Coffee-House shows and musicals. “I was recently selected to the National Choir and am looking forward to being part of this prestigious group in Dallas in 2013.”
Even though he likes all kinds of music, what he really enjoys singing the most is Pop and Hip-Hop. “I want to create music that blends the sounds of classic Pop with the beats of American Hip-Hop. A haunting melody, soulful lyrics and toe-tapping rhythm, and I’m in the groove.”
Besides singing, he enjoys playing tennis, swimming and hanging with his friends. He is optimistic about his chances of getting recognition for his music, as he states: “I am sure once people hear my songs, they will enjoy them and support me to create more beautiful music.”
