My mother often speaks of how I would move in her womb while my fathers’ band performed. Other than that, she said I was a still development. I have lived my life around music. It’s something I will do until I cannot breathe anymore. I started off as a percussionist (if you want to call a three year old that) in my father’s band. I placed third in my first competition at age four on drums in Denver, CO. I was one of few children to compete and the only child to place among the mostly adult competitors. After years of traveling as a child performer I began to hear songs by age twelve. What’s really funny is that I still remember the first song entitled “Telephono”. LOL! “you called me late last night on the phono, you said you loved me I said oh no”. To a twelve year old budding musician that was the bomb! LOL! That began my journey with words and poetry. I was quite and shy away from the stage. Small for my age, with big eyes and chubby cheeks, I was not the ideal image of a lady’s man. All I had was my music. No one could take that from me nor deny my talent. My middle school years brought me into my experience with bells and marimba. My band director, Mr. Greg Daniels, told me that he felt I had a natural gift with mallet percussion. I reluctantly submitted to the task and accidently fell in love with all things mallet oriented. From there I moved over to piano and began to put melody to my words. That’s when I began to think I could be a songwriter. My high school experience gave birth to my love of string instruments and true expression of melody. Mr. Michael Mayhall was my director. It was his passion of the song Kaddish (a Jewish death song) that made me realize the true power of music. I watched him direct it with his eyes feeling up and zoning out. He later told us that the song reminded him of his fathers’ death process. From that point, music was never the same to me. It changed from something heard, to something felt down to the soul. I currently reside in the Atlanta area and write, compose, and produce for individuals as well as major and indie labels. I’m always looking for good talent to include on current projects so feel free to hit me up with your bio, MP3, and headshot info. Best wishes….
