Keenan Payne has loved music since he was a kid with classic R/B, classical, pop and every other genre of music introduced to him at a very young age. He’s recorded and mixed music and voiceover talents in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia (DMV) area since graduating from Old Dominion University with a B.S. in Business/Music Production. He also provides quality engineering & recording consultancy to independent artists and other creatives like his recording and editing of audio in this video. Keenan serves as a music engineering consultant for the Janine Sound Company / LegacyStory Gifts, but we're not selfish - he's also freelancing. Connect with him here.
"Keenan is extraordinarily patient, precise, and a little bit of a perfectionist - I think he canned the phrase, "I tell you what, just give it to me just like that one more time - then we're going home." I enjoyed the experience of working with him, and my family, friends, and fans LOVE the results - my first CD! I look forward to working with him in the future." - Tara Boyd, Independent Artist, Washington, D.C.
Janine Payne is an American singer/storyteller who has practiced her craft in many places around the world. She is the voice behind LegacyStory Gifts. Her vocal and voiceover style gives life to lyrics and narrations. Her extraordinary-rich, deep velvet tones, and powerful lower register, masters the range and interpretations to the likes of Nina Simone, Sarah Vaughan, and Mahalia Jackson. Her natural ability to engage and communicate with people to learn and capture the essence of who they are, and then bring forth a customized audio tribute for a unique experience, requires the building of trust, care, and technique.
“I have never heard or felt something so beautiful. She captured Joan and John’s life through a customized story mixed with tributes from family, music and everything…it’s simply a work of art for the ears. Now I want one done for our anniversary!” - Guest at an event where a LegacyStory Gift was presented.
