Artist Biography by

Jaime Ikeda has spent the last 15 years working in retail, wholesale and as a compilations producer.

He worked his way up the ranks at Tower Records from a clerk to a dance music buyer which led to an offer of employment by CEMA Distribution (now known as EMD or EMI Music Distribution). His nearly ten years with the CEMA offered him the opportunity to present an idea for a five-volume set of music geared toward the Gay and Lesbian community entitled "Free to Be" which now stands at ten volumes strong.

Jaime now works as a freelance writer, producer, and as an aspiring artist as well.
