Aamina Gant was born into the music business, with a prominent songwriter father and record executive mother. She began recording and assisting with producing vocals at the age of 10 and has not looked back.
Most recently, Aamina has signed on to a number of high-profile projects including multiple series for Producer/Director Ava Duvernay – DMZ for HBO Max with director Ernest Dickerson, starring Rosario Dawson; Naomi for the CW with director Amanda Marsalis, and Colin in Black and White, the Colin Kapernick documentarynow airing on Netflix. She is also the music supervisor for upcoming projects Breathe for Netflix, and Bust Down, for Peacock.
Aamina began her career at BMI working closely with songwriters and producers as well as learning the ins and outs of music licensing. Aamina moved on, transitioning into music management, working with top artists such as The Backstreet Boys, Mary J Blige, and 112. She was an integral part of T.I.‘s management team at the height of his career.
In 2013, Aamina decided to pursue her interest in working in TV and Film music, securing a position at Sony Pictures Television. In her role as a Creative Manager, she worked on such shows as The Goldbergs, The Queen Latifah Show, Outlander, and Better Call Saul. Additionally, she was given the responsibility of music supervising the many TV movies that were produced by the company.
Aamina then decided to spread her wings and go independent. She was the “on set” music director for Lee Daniels’ Fox show, STAR. For all 3 seasons, she oversaw the recording of all original music for the show. This included vocal production of the cast, securing outside featured artists, and assisting the incoming directors with executing Lee’s vision for each musical performance.
More recently, Aamina has been the Music Production Consultant for the Showtime series Black Monday, and was the music supervisor for Nat Geo’s Genius: Aretha, and a Salt-N–Pepa biopic for Lifetime.
She looks forward to continuing to work closely with creatives to assist in shaping and executing the perfect marriage between music and story!
