IV the Polymath
Born in Muncie, Indiana, IV the Polymath was
exposed to music at a very early age. He had
his first violin recital when he was two years old, began piano lessons at age four and later
picked up drums and guitar when he was ten. His family moved around the country so much
that music became the major constant in his life. Throughout his youth, IV the Polymath played
in dozens of bands, but in college he learned
about music production and was blown away. Once he learned about beats and that he could do everything himself, there was no turning back. After
graduate school, IV established Polymath Records, which he owns and operates to this very day. Polymath Records is an independent record label and music licensing company specializing in hip-hop,
jazz, funk, and electronic music. To date, the label has released 12 albums and licensed music to such companies as Alli Sports
(Mountain Dew Tour 2011), Great Lakes Sports Publications Inc., Deadpoint Media, and more. IV’s work
has been featured on Sirius Satellite Radio, XM Radio, WEFUNK Radio, National Public Radio, BBC
Radio, and HipHopDx.com among other major players. In addition, he has collaborated with others on a
variety of music projects. In March 2010, he was named “Featured Producer” by Subsoniq Instrumentals.
IV the Polymath works out of Polymath Records’ studio in Phoenix, AZ and has a music licensing
operation in Indiana.
