avatar for Hoodzone



Courtland Collins Harvell (Professionally known as Hoodzone (also known as Hood or simply Zone) Raised in Birmingham, Alabama was first introduced to music through his father who was an active pianist for the Temptations. As a piano student of his father, Hoodzone became very familiar with the keys and later learned to play alone. Once headed to high school, Hoodzone had a jump start on writing music from his home teachings and this helped him secure a spot in the Parker high school band. His involvement with the band inspired Hoodzone to not only play, but also make and produce music on his own. Everyday after school or band practice, he would rush home to record sounds from his keyboard to his computer and call it a beat. Once he became confident in his at-home beat set up, which was keyboard to desktop, he then started inviting artists to his house to rap over the beats on a mini microphone. As time passed, he gained more and more experience as he continued to work with various artists over his personalized beats at his home studio. Hoodzone linked up with YBN Nahmir and produced a long catalog of songs over his custom beats that has streams millions of listens from “No Hook” “Letter to Valley” Change “I Got A Stick” “Popped Up” and his latest, “Bounce Out With That.” He is currently working with Blac Chyna.
