Ill Factor

Ivan Corraliza, professionally known as ill Factor, began creating music where most everyone begins, in the bedroom fueled by ambition and a dream to turn his hobby into a full-time job. Countless hours of music-making and tweaking led to some moments of frustration while trying to get his music noticed. However, everything changed when Ivan sought out a mentor and was blessed to be taken under the wing of Jimmy Douglass. Jimmy is a veteran in the music industry with more than forty-plus years of experience working with artists from Aretha Franklin to Justin Timberlake. He began sharing his network and insights into the Industry with Ivan, which helped Ivan create relationships with artists and industry professionals, turning his hobby of making music into a career.
