Grammy nominated producer and songwriter Printz Board contributed six songs to the 2010 nominated Album of the Year THE E.N.D. by The Black Eyed Peas. From their inception, Printz helped shape the sound and success of the Peas.
Printz Board tracks on THE E.N.D. (which stands for The Energy Never Dies) include “Missing You” and “Out Of My Head” (co-producer and writer along with frontman will.i.am). He is writer of “Rockin’ to the Beat,” “One Tribe,” “Where Ya Wanna Go,” and “Don't Phunk Around.” In addition to Album of the Year, the record is also nominated for The Best Pop Vocal Album at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards.
Board’s writing and production skills have resulted in him working with Fergie on a solo album, as well as with Justin Timberlake, Michael Jackson, Latin icon Shakira, Natasha Bedingfield, Ice Cube, Katy Perry, John Legend, Busta Rhymes, Macy Gray, Warren G, Nikki Costa, Cathy Dennis, Colby O'Donis, Cassie Davis, and Backstreet Boys.
Board has also scored TV movies and commercials for Victoria's Secret and Benefiber. His song “One Tribe” from THE E.N.D. was featured in a Pepsi commercial.
Board’s production company, Beets & Produce, includes a state of art recording studio, and production deals with producers Sleep Deez and Moody. The company launched a clothing range that has been called “fashionably relaxed” and “upscale leisure.” His entrepreneurial business ventures include the vodka brand KROL (which means King in Polish), LA restaurant Ketchup, and the nightspot Wonderland.
The producer also found time in his busy schedule to earn a double major degree from San Diego State University, in Music and Business.
