About E.Q.: Forrest "E.Q." West was born with a passion for music and showed dedication to it at an early age. His mother, Grammy award winner Deniece Williams, had major influence in his life without having to do much of anything. At the age of 8 he went and saw his mom perform in London and at that moment, when he saw the crowd he realized music was what he wanted to do with his life. It was in his blood. He got involved in school and church choir as well as writing his own music. At the age of 14, E.Q. started his own Pop/R&B music group, Keyz2poetry. The group was together for 2 years before they decided to part ways. E.Q. was far from done with music. He attended the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA and learned the history of music, how to read/write music and how to perfect the music that rekindled his love for making it. He had grown up and found a more mature, raw way of delivering his vocal singing and rapping. E.Q. known for his love for R&B, he has incorporated Pop and a splash of Hip-Hop to create music that is original to say the least. He has now made Keyz2poetry a production company.
