Mr.Gilmore hails from Charlottesville,Va and is the nephew of the late great drummer Johnny Gilmore. Musically Mr.Gilmore got his start under tutelage from his Uncles Johnny Gilmore and Curtis Gilmore. His Uncle Johnny was a world class musician that played for more than 30 bands during his lifetime. Being a fatherless child his Uncle Johnny played a prominate role in cultivating his love for drumming which ultimately lead to trying to master every instrument he came in contact with.Also he was helped by Houston Ross, John Hornsby, Jamal Milner, Ivan Orr, Shonn (Bump) Brown and classical violinist/conductor Laura Mulligan Thomas.
Although he didn’t pursue music any further in school after his brief stint in the orchestra, Mr.Gilmore kept a fine knowledge of music with his uncanny ability to hear music over and over in his head.

There at the Music Resource Center Mr.Gilmore received help with his musical journey, gaining knowledge bestowed upon him by engineers; Jamal Milner, Todd Brown, artist and scholars. Later on Mr.Gilmore went on to be employed by the same folks and afforded the right to cultivate his newfound love for piano. Receiving a keyboard from his Grandmother Anna Gilmore also helped to push his thirst that has led to him making beats, tracks and producing for a long list of folks.
