Sometimes, life takes unexpected turns and leads us to paths we never thought we would follow. For Pierre Balian, a former competitive figure skater turned music producer and songwriter, this is exactly what happened.
After retiring from figure skating in 2010, Pierre set his sights on talent management and music production. He built strong relationships with top producers, artists, and executives in the industry, but after pursuing an A&R position for a decade, he decided it was time for a change.
Pierre’s determination led him to the studio with Justin Bieber, where he learned the art of music production, creation, and delivery. During the pandemic lockdown, he taught himself how to play the piano via YouTube tutorials and landed his first production placement with artist BMW Kenny, whose song “Wipe It Down” became one of the top streaming records of 2020 on TikTok, with close to 2 billion streams to date.
Since then, Pierre has worked with renowned artists like Wiz Khalifa, Maffio, Play & Skillz, and Hitboy. His most recent work includes producing for Mexican rap queen Snow Tha Product and Ludmilla’s EP release. He is also set to produce for her upcoming album.
Despite being a Los Angeles native, Pierre currently resides in Medellin, Colombia, where he is working on his own project with local artists and producers. His project, featuring artists from around the world, is set to release later this year.
Unfortunately, in September 2022, Pierre’s main verified Instagram account, which had over 100K followers, was deleted by a team of paid representatives at Meta. However, fans can follow him on his new Instagram account to stay updated on his music and projects.
Pierre’s dedication to music production is evident through the quality of his work. He is actively working with independent artists to help them create their identity and elevate their talents to new heights.
With his passion and talent, it’s clear that Pierre Balian is a rising star in the music industry. He has come a long way from being a figure skater, but it seems that he has found his true calling. As he continues to produce music that inspires millions of people around the world, there’s no doubt that Pierre Balian will continue to take over the industry.
