What does a typical day look like for you?

Why did you decide to start your own business and why Houston?

We were born and raised in Houston and want to create something new and innovating.

What are your inspirations and how do they guide your work?

Our inspirations are the musicians and the people we work for. We strive to be a company that makes a difference to our clients. We represent our city and our peers. We named our guitar The Montrose after our favorite neighborhood and even used wood from a tree cut down in the neighborhood

What's next for Elephant Music Productions?

Next For Elephant Music Productions would be to grow to a point where we can become a household name. We want to create a company people want to work for. 2014 is going to be a big year for EMP.
