    Casio 76 keyboard to Berklee College of Music to Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reunion

    Casio 76 keyboard to Berklee College of Music to Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reunion

    From his Casio 76 keyboard to acceptance to Berklee College of Music in Boston to contributing to the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” reboot’s musical score, Royce Martin has caught fire over the past several years.
    Royce Martin is a pianist and composer currently attending the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Royce taught himself the piano at the age of 14 on a small keyboard. He has a rich musical background and an affinity for various genres, from classical to jazz to popular contemporary. Royce has a working knowledge of many musical traditions and their historical context and can compose and perform accordingly. Over the past three summers, Royce worked as a pianist and lecturer, speaking to the long and storied history of ragtime and American music at the Scott Joplin State Historic Site in St. Louis, where he received stellar reviews and attracted the attention of local news on multiple occasions. Fall 2020 brought Royce national attention when he was tapped to score “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reunion” show for HBO-MAX. While Royce has been the recipient of many nominations and awards, he remains humble to understand that he is but a novice to the masters who inspire him. Now he continues on his path of musicianship—always in pursuit of the sonic sweet spot where his artistic skills meet the kaleidoscope of his vision.

Great host and even better content

The idea of changing careers can be absolutely painstaking. Simon Yost is one of the few people who I believe has the care and patience to really sit down and dig through some of those complex thoughts and feelings. I’d absolutely recommend this podcast to anyone who’s interested in growing their career. Its full of advice, stories, details, practicals, and so much more. Would absolutely recommend.

Interesting and inspiring

I've really enjoyed listening to Catch Fire. S someone with an untraditional career path, it's reassuring to know that I'm not weird and that there are lots of other successful people making an impact who aren't necessarily in their field of study.

Simon is a great host: positive, inquisitive, and good at unpacking things.
