You know Mark Ronson as the co-producer of Amy Winehouse's Back In Black and/or SamRo's brother. But did you know he idolized Donny Hathaway and rocked a power bang as a teenager? The Creators Project chatted him up at his Williamsburg studio.

Mark Ronson, mix-master and professional gadabout, is a featured Creator of The Creators Project, a modern-day media channel that will continually identify and celebrate the work of visionary artists wherever they are. It is also a content creation studio, an arts foundation of sorts that will facilitate the production and dissemination of new work with these artists and their collaborators.
