About Artist

WHO I AM I was born and raised in Wilson NC. I grew up with the influences of Hall and Oates, The Doobie Brothers, Billy Ocean, Barry White, Al Green, Sam Cook and Robert Cray. I've always tried to surround myself with great music, wherever it comes from. Music has just always been in my blood and I love it all. I write, sing, play, compose, and produce. If it's music, it's me. I began performing in a family cover band as a little kid. I started out on the drums and we covered everything from the 70's-the 2000's. My Dad was probably the most influential person in my musical life. Just watching him and his love for music inspired me to pick up piano, bass, guitar and drums. I joined the military when I was 19 and got exposed to a lot of other places other than NC. I eventually got stationed out in Hawaii. Lucky, I know. I fell in love with the Polynesian culture and its integration of music and find myself here still. Through all my travels music was my constant companion. I met up with some great artists out here and continued my passion. I did a bunch of work with some great Hip Hop artists as a member of Astatine Collective and alongside Jerry Wilkins (Sub-Zero) and James Terrell Trice (Alieu$). Eventually I decided it was time to go for what has always been inside of me. I've always felt that music should make you feel. The music I listened to when I was young changed me and I always wanted to be a part of that. R&B is the place I wanted to be and here I am. I began work on my solo album earlier this year. It's something I've really thrown my soul into. I want my music to pull people in, help them feel and never get tired of it. If I can do this I know I will have made my Father proud and will have done justice to those before me who have helped me along the way. In 2015 a project I produced along side Jerry Wilkins (Astatine Collective) received a Na Hoku Hanohano Award for Best R&B album of the year, I was also nominated for Best Instrumental Composition of the year. Achievements that I hope that I will continue to receive amongst others in my Musical Career.
