Artist Origins: Avery Storm, Kiley Dean, and Ryan Tedder/One Republic

Ever wonder how some of your favorite artists got their start or even linked up with Timbaland? Well, check out these three (somewhat) recent interviews with Avery Storm, Kiley Dean, and Ryan Tedder of One Republic.

While most people know the R&B singer Avery Storm from his features on hit songs like Notorious B.I.G.'s "Nasty Girl" (off the Biggie Duets album) and Rick Ross' "Here I Am," hardcore Timstans will remember him as being part of the Beat Club artist roster under the name The Storm. Check out this interview Avery Storm did with YouKnowIGotSoul on how he originally meet Tim and signed with Beat Club and what he's up to now:

Hopefully one day we'll get to hear the tracks Avery and Tim worked on (Timbaland Thursdays?)

YouKnowIGotSoul also did an interview with Avery's fellow Beat Club label-mate, Kiley Dean, and she was very candid about Tim, Beat Club, the music industry, and her upcoming projects:

Wow, Kiley first met Tim back in 1999 and had a development deal with him and Missy?!? Imagine if that deal worked out and we might have had Kiley on Missy's Da Real World or Miss E...So Addictive!

Lastly, Chicago radio personality, John Williams, sat down last year with Ryan Tedder to discuss One Republic, the music market, and his future collaborations. Peep:

Hmmmm. Wonder why Ryan didn't mention working on Bubba Sparxxx's Deliverance album? But, damn! Can you believe Columbia dropped One Republic, Katy Perry, AND the Jonas Brothers from their label? And all on the same day? Wow. Goes to show you that if one door closes, another one will open.
