Guitarist - Composer - Producer
From the very first time I perceived music, I knew that it would always be part of my life. I learned the basics of reading simple sheet music in grade school. My mother was an avid church goer. Spending all day Sunday at church was where I learned the dynamics of music. We had a full choir, a lead singer at the organ, a piano, and a drummer. The musicians at church could play anything. No charts needed. It was awesome.
I decided that I wanted to play drums and guitar. My family helped me get my first real drum set. I practiced until I could play almost anything. That drove my neighbors nuts, but soon after my chops began to gel.
A record producer, Miles Grayson, moved onto my street. He heard me playing the drums and invited me in to see what I could do. Shortly after that, I was in his studio cutting demos with the old guys and earning a few bucks. I was also playing with choirs, gospel singers, and friends; making money or not. I was having this incredible life because of music.
So now years later, here I am. I'm having a great time with family and friends while making music. But now the music gets global radio airplay. Everything I’ve learned as husband, father, friend, mentor, and musician are a result of having a great family, and living a life of faith. I am driven to live and love this wonderful life and the people I meet--still making and sharing my music, until I am escorted out.
