Biography

Born in Milwaukee,Wisconsin…Home of The Milwaukee Braves,Miller Brewing Co. and Harley-Davidson Motorcycles on October 29th,1955…SSP Recordings featured Recording Artist…Percussionist/Composer/Producer~Felix Langford, began his musical journey at the age of 11, taking violin lessons in Jr.High. At that time,the violin was not considered to be a “very cool” instrument in his neighborhood and he was teased constantly. So, Felix turned his violin case around and carried it like it was a saxophone. He really didn’t fool anyone but himself.

At 13, Felix fell in love with the art of percussion and credits his older brother, John,“Doc”, as he was nicknamed…as the one responsible for teaching him the basic beats and exposing his ears to some of the hippest,innovative cats on the jazz scene.Trendsetters like…Coltrane,Miles,Dizzy,Monk,Candido,Charlie Parker,Wes Montgomery,Grant Green,Herbie Hancock,Chick Corea and Mongo Santamaria…just to name a few!! “Love ya,Doc”!! At 15, playing one conga, Felix joined his first band…”The Oddyssey Band” , a redhot 10 piece cover band that included his younger brother,Herb (lil’ Jimi Hendrix) on lead guitar and cousin, Mike Moon on Bass and a full *(Baddasss)* horn section, just like EWF’s “Phoenix Horns” and the “Tower Of Power” Horns!!! They went on to win many “Battle of the Bands” competitions!!!!

Along with all the multitude of talented artists,back in the day, “The Motown Sound”, “The Philly Sound”,etc;also touched Felix,but,of all the groups
