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.
She 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 and has since worked with top artists such as The Backstreet Boys, Mary J Blige, 112, and 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 was the “on set” music director for Lee Daniels’ Fox show, STAR. For all 3 seasons she steered the creative direction and 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.
Most recently, Aamina is providing music supervision for the Netflix documentary series Colin in Black and White, and is the Music Production Consultant for the Showtime series Black Monday. She recently completed work on 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!
