Reginald Van Carreker graduated from Cornell University. He hit the Washington music scene in 1978 and became a session player (keyboards, guitar, bass and vocals) in New York City in the early 1980’s. He began producing dance material for New York Indie labels (Prelude Records, Profile, VanGuard) during the mid ’80’s.

After producing local talent in his home-based recording studio, he launched the label No Sweat Records. In 2005, he released the album ‘Xactly What I Need’, followed by ‘Exotica’ in 2006. This album featured a cover version of This Woman’s Work. His third and last ‘smooth jazz’ album was ‘Always there’ (2008).

His career took a turn for the spiritual when he released the album ‘The Awakening’ (2008), featuring ‘praise and groove music to glorify Christ’.
