I'm a Soul-Rock Vocalist/Recording artist living in Chicago. I began my career in music at the age of 9 when I became a member of the Chicago Children's Choir. Throughout high school, I fronted for several bands.
The love of my life, music-wise, is Jazz. I recorded a jazz CD a few years back and have performed at various jazz venues in Chicago and New York. For my sophomore effort, I'm currently developing material both collaboratively and solely. This time around I want to record a Sout-Rock album with a little jazz and Hip Hop sneaked in.

Listening To Right Now
Lately, I have been listening to a lot of Alice Smith. I really connect with her song crafting style.
Woo, Love of My life, Healer, Just Friends, Jill Scott's Rocked out Version of "The Way." You ain't heard this song until you've heard this version!!!
