Solomon Vaughn (also known as Boonie Mayfield and Boon Doc) is a musician hailing from Colorado Springs that helped pave the way for artists in the early days of the online production scene. While known for his music production, Solomon is far from "just" anything and has proven himself to be an extremely capable emcee, writer, sound designer, dancer and video producer.
For years, Boonie Mayfield's Youtube channel inspired many young producers to get in touch with their creative potential and inject quality sounds into each musical endeavor. A multitalented virtuoso, Solomon has now began to pursue a career in his first passion, acting and filmmaking.
"Simply labeling Solomon Vaughn a/k/a Boonie Mayfield as a Hip-Hop artist/producer is a pretty restrictive label for the Colorado Springs native. He is an artist. Period. From his lush studio instrumentation to the committed, experimental shamelessness of his raps and beats, Boonie Mayfield has always explored music-making unapologetically, at the risk of radically revising his sound despite its reception on each new occasion.
Boonie’s mindset and creative approach is more comparable to an “auteur filmmaker” than the common studio musician, and so he has come thus far with an adventurous, high-flying model of producing music. He transcends genres; he twists and turns styles, always searching for every possible creative edge, no matter how elusive that may prove to be. He has produced and released many projects, stylistically diverse between them, but always with one common goal in mind – being the best he can be by his own standards and means.
Following in the footsteps of influences like OutKast, Q-Tip, Kanye West, Pink Floyd, The Beatles and Prince; Boonie Mayfield is not one to play to guidelines, borders and limitations. The brazen self-assurance of his abilities allows him to, more often than not, work outside of the box. His strength is not just in his will, but in his determination; that fierce insistence that whatever he has already achieved is simply not enough. This is what drives him continuously, in his attempt to scale new heights and peaks with his craft." - jamsphere.com
