I’m inspired by: Music & strong people
I realized I wanted to play music: @ age 12 when I saw my brother
& my best friend starting to play instruments
One word I would use to describe myself: Unique
The best part of being a musician is: That I get to touch peoples
hearts & inspire all generations @ once.
Right now I’m most excited about: Getting back in the studio,
even though my 1st Album on a Major Label is done. I have 6 more songs
I’m ready to produce & Record Right now! Boooyaaa
Something most people don’t know about me:
I write songs with the best of them, truly, purely, from my soul….
For your Soul,
Most people write songs to make money & pay back the money they
owe to the label, but I do it for the Strength passion & Message…I’m
a Soulja of Love Like the Sade Song.
One of my happiest moments was: When I went to the Boardwalk with
both of my Sons for 8 hrs. riding roller coasters and eating Corn
Dogs & Cotton Candy.
My music is: Alive & Has a Soul…. My Music is A Heavy Weight
Boxer……My Music Is Healing…….My Music is for
In ten years: I SEE MYSELF HAPPY AND AT PEACE WITH ALL THINGS. I SEE
MYSELF AS AN AMBASSADOR FOR MANY MOVEMENTS, I SEE ME BEING ABLE TO
HAVE THE RESOURCES & ABUNDANCES TO HAVE A REHAB & MANY PROGRAMS

BE IN MOVIES, AND FEATURE ON MANY OTHER ARTISTS’ RECORDS. ITS
GOING TO BE A WILD JOURNEY.
