Artist background: I got into music for the feel of real music, we all have our own music stream spiritually I believe and it’s used to relate to others to overcome hardships.
You can call it a man’s testimony to what’s happening now to how you handled the moment in the experience, it’s our bible. I’ve always loved music from starring in plays or humming a tune to beating a sound, my family is full of singers, dancers and heart.
I feel I am a statistic of society due to no father but knowledge of my family and I watched a strong women struggle with three kids. I’m a 80s baby and music then was a lot more pure than today’s music but simple: The Commodores, The Singers, Enigma, the soul of it is irreplaceable, so just try to stay in tune with my concepts and a common sense matter.
By this I landed representation with 180 South Music Group, soon I’ll be dropping my first independent album New Life as well as various tapes I plan on releasing.
