James Morales ’06, Matt Morales ’08, and David Rodriguez make up the New York-based production team the Elev3n. Since forming in 2011, the trio has achieved success in production and songwriting in the pop, hip-hop, and R&B world. Their clients include Meghan Trainor, the Wanted, Sean Kingston, and Jesse McCartney.
The team signed a production deal with L.A. Reid at Epic Records and a publishing deal at Sony/ATV. "One of the greatest things I noticed when I walked into the Sony building in Manhattan, right away I saw Berklee alumni, and thought this is incredible," James Morales '06 said, recognizing the importance of cultivating Berklee connections, including their manager, Nils Gums '06 of the Complex Group, and Karmin, which is composed of alumni Amy Heidemann '08 and Nick Noonan '08.
