Platinum Ice Records physically began on Aug 6th 2006. AB Money, Casey Hoban, and Tom Simjian formed the dynamic record label over lunch in Cheraw SC, the home of jazz great Dizzy Gillespie. Their Vision was to blend Brooklyn NY`s Roots of Hip Hop merged with the soulful sounds of the south which has never been done. The true beginning of this masterful music organization took place many years prior to that date in the mind of one man. This mans name is Mr. AB Mosely. Mr. Mosely is an outstanding talent in all areas of the music industry and a sound veteran having taken part in the development of various major entertainers careers, as well as amassing over eight platinum records or which he was involved in. Mr. Mosely is mostly known for his outstanding vocal presence in the group RIF who won best Rap Artists of the Year on their entrance to the music scene and Best New Artists, as well as performed for the Olympics that year. Also he is known for his performances on the all time favorite Tupac hits "Temptations" and "Running From The Police", as well as his work with the hit "Dear Momma" and more. With the addition of his life long friends, the legend Easy Mo Bee and Big Bub, Mosely has created an awesome arsenal of musical talent that ranges from soulful R&B to the mix of the various hip hop styles of today. Mosely also co-wrote and sung on Tupac`s "Out on Bail". This profound independent label is here to offer only the best in music entertainment and more.

Platinum Ice offers a wide variety of musical genius that stretches widely across the board. Not too many words can describe the great Easy Mo Bee`s contribution to the world of music. Having worked with and help molded some of the music worlds finest such as: Tupac, The Notorious BIG, Alicia Keys, Craig Mac, J Lo, Miles Davis, LL Cool J, The Lost Boyz and more, Easy Mo Bee is a huge contribution to the foundation of Platinum Ice Records. Easy Mo Bee`s influence to the music world is unpresidented, having produced almost half the songs on the "Ready to Die" album. Having produced beats for over 25 platinum hits himself, Easy Mo Bee is a towering powerhouse producer, with the ability to bring out the best in any artist. With the aid of his brother LG, they have brought a major musical aspect to the structure of Platinum Ice Records. Anthony Mosely worked along side Easy in many of these ventures and together they are a force to be reckoned with. However, the addition of outstanding song writer/producer Big Bub, who also has quit a few platinum hits under his belt including such names as Blackstreet, Mary J, and wrote and was background singer for the all time favorite My Prerogative by Bobby Brown, there is no stopping the continuous rise of the Platinum Ice Legacy. Big Bub also reached an outstanding level in his career, securing the position as Vice President of Motown Records, prior to their merger. Easy Mo Bee along side the Legendary Puff Daddy, aided in the creation of the great Bad Boy Legacy before his departure from their company.

Along with this team of great musical pioneers stands another group of awesome men, and they are Mr. Tom Simjian and Mr. Casey Hoban, two of the business worlds finest. They have claimed countless marvels in the world of multi million investments, and have risen to the top of their game in every way imaginable. With a team this great the success of Platinum Ice is without measure, mega platinum records are on the way as we speak. However, one of the most outstanding aspects of this creation is the formation of the team itself. This brand new beast of a creation that highlights a blend of Brooklyn NYC, and South Carolina, is one of the most versatile units that has ever been created. From the ability to create hard knock Hip Hop of any flavor to soft smooth R&B that calms the soul, nothing is out of the reach of these great musical icons.

Platinum Ice Records is here to bring you a sound that is beyond your normal listen, and take to a world of music that has been long awaited and well deserved. Founded on blind faith, AB has brought together an all-cast of performers that will rewrite the world of Hip Hop and R&B. You can also catch Mr. Mosely on "The Best of the Source Awards" on stage with Tupac!

Artist, author Jerry Wennstrom was born in New York on January 13, 1950. He attended Rockland Community College and the State University of New Paltz. After producing a large body of work, at age 29 he set out to discover the rock-bottom truth of his life. For years he questioned the limits of his creative life as a studio painter. After destroying all of his art and giving away everything he owned, Jerry began a life of unconditional trust, allowing life to provide all that was needed. He lived this way for 15 years. In 1998 he moved to Washington State, where he eventually married Marilyn Strong and produced a large new body of art. Marilyn and Jerry`s charming Whidbey Island home is now filled with his unique interactive sculptures and paintings. Jerry also built a 40-foot meditation tower on his property, which is featured along with his story in a book by Laura Chester called Holy Personal.

Jerry`s story is told in his book, The Inspired Heart: An Artist`s Journey of Transformation (foreword by Thomas Moore) published by Sentient Publications and in the Parabola Magazine documentary film called In the Hands of Alchemy: The Art and Life of Jerry Wennstrom. There is also a Sentient Publications DVD with the same name ,which includes a short new film called Studio Dialogue. Studio Dialogue is a presentation Jerry did before a live audience with music by Susan McKeown, sung by Marilyn Strong. Jerry travels internationally lecturing, teaching and presenting his film and work and he writes a monthly piece on the spirit of the times for a New York City consulting firm.

Jerry Wennstrom has presented at the Birmingham Art Museum, the Seattle Art Museum, the EMP (Experience Music Project), Glen Arbor Art Association, the Old Firehouse Art Center, Other Side Arts, Pacifica Graduate Institute, UCS-NAROPA (Wisdom University), the Vancouver Public Library, Western New Mexico University, California Institute of the Arts and NYU. He has also done over 50 radio, TV and magazine interviews and art features.
