Christopher Starr set out to build a successful music career spanning over 20 years in the music industry. Partnering with other highly successful music industry executives, Starr along with his team went on to establish their early beginnings with B-Rich Productions and Baby Honey Records. Over the years, he continued to expand himself in the ever changing recording industry with the rise of digital downloads, and the decline of albums sales. While many companies fell under the pressure of the times, he continued to innovate by creating and developing new opportunities. Together they established successful platinum and gold albums on Boyz II Men, Next, J Kwon, Sounds of Blackness, and many more.
Starrtraxx Music Productions (which later changed it’s name to CSP Music Group) began as a music production company which produced, engineered, composed, and/or wrote songs for artist such as Christina Aguilera, Mary J Blige, Dawn Richard (D.

CSP Music Group- Current Day
CSP Music Group decided to expand from a music production company to a national one stop multi-faceted advanced logistics company. Using their established industry connections, CSP was able to offer unsigned artist the same opportunities as signed artist. This created a platform for artists who chose to focus their time and creativity on their music, and maintain creative control of their own finances and their work. Today, CSP Music Group's team have gained recent credits with many of todays top Billboard charting artist. CSP Music Group also expanded into working with Reality TV which included an appearance on VH1, B.E.T, Brovo and other major television networks.
As the climate in the music industry evolved, it became evident that major record companies were no longer investing big budgets to develop their acts and that most of the deals that were made by the labels usually benefited the earnings of the record company more than the artist. Since artists needed to maintain a higher percentage of their profits from album sales - the need for an artist to sign with a major label had changed. That transformation encouraged the value of having the support of an independent label to become a necessity; which inspired Christopher to launch CSP Music Group and bridge the gap between the elite key people in the industry with those who are just starting or looking to take their careers to the next level.
