Jeremy Cochise Ball is a Multi-Platinum Record Producer, Mix Engineer, and DJ from Buffalo, NY.  "Cochise" came from a musical family and by the age sixteen he was booking his first DJ gigs. He soon began recording local artists and his Hip Hop group named Poverty, landed a deal with Polygram Records. The group was signed to Payday Records alongside Jay-Z and also Gangstarr who collaborated on Poverty's 1993 Single "Peace With a Piece". Within Buffalo’s  music scene, Cochise developed a cultural movement that would become his trademark. In 1997 and 1998 Cochise’s band, the Insomniacs, won Buffalo Music Awards for best Hip Hop Group, showcasing talent of every age, race, sex, and religion together on one stage. Now operating as a full time DJ and promoter, Cochise and his team were throwing showcases to consistently sold out crowds.
A trip to New York City became one of the biggest turning points in Cochise’s career.  His visit turned into a new home when Cochise was offered a job at Battery Studios and Jive Records as an engineer. In this world class studio, he mentored under some of the top engineers and producers in the music industry. Long nights were spent assisting sessions for Mariah Carey, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Jaheim, Dead Prez, and Big Pun to name a few. It wasn’t long before Cochise’s talent was noticed. Hip Hop superstars, Naughty by Nature, asked him to produce and engineer multiple songs, catapulting him to a higher level of professionalism and clout. His next big move was to score a major deal with RCA Records for his soulful female singer from Buffalo, Stori James. Cochise then teamed with his protégé, now Grammy winning producer, Emile Haynie, and they began selling beats between sessions. Soon they were hired for projects working with Michael Jackson, Eminem, Notorious B.I.G, The Beatnuts, Remy Ma, and many others. Branching into the film industry, Sony Pictures licensed one of Cochise's songs for their hit movie Superbad. Cochise had now started had his own production company, and embarked on a freelance career that would take him around the world. He was Executive Producer and Engineer for New Zealand’s top Hip Hop album “The Weekend” by MTC / Universal Records artist, Smashproof. They shattered music sales records with their single "Brother" that still stands unrivaled to this day. 
Coming full circle, Cochise returned to Buffalo and was recruited by Griselda Records to engineer projects for Hip Hop sensations; Westside Gunn, Benny the butcher and Conway the Machine. Cochise was soon invited to become a staff engineer at the world-class GCR Audio, one of the best recording studios in western New York. Looking to give back to the community that gave him his start, Cochise re-launched Quiet As Kept Records and signed unique artists such as pop-rock singer Blaise Mercedes and jazz crooner Curtis Lovell. In a return to the DJ booth, Cochise performed alongside Shaggy, Pete Rock, Afrika Bambaata, and many other Hip Hop legends. In the advertising world, he took both AVA & Telly Awards, producing songs for Buffalo’s Roswell Park Cancer Institute and the Niagara Frontier Transportation Authority (NFTA). Cochise also spent time teaching students at the University of Buffalo and the BAVPA school of performing arts, as well as lecturing at training schools like BOCES. He has dedicate himself to empowering the next generation of musicians and artists, and continuing his message of unity.  Cochise is currently managing a busy schedule of studio sessions, teaching, and performing while always keeping the door open for new talent to walk in. After decades of music, Cochise still displays a tireless energy for learning and sharing his knowledge of music, he serves as a connector between the artists, the industry, and the audience. He accomplishes this by speaking a language we all understand - the language of music.
