What made you decide that you wanted to become a singer?

When I was little, what I heard on the radio made me imitate the sounds and voices and I feel I had a knack for that at the time. But in high school, singing was something I could do and people heard me sing so ever since then I’ve been shooting for it!

What goals do you have for the next year?

My next year goals are to get on more festival stages and network more and to expand my brand. And build up the revenue to continue this musical journey.

Who inspires you the most musically?

That’s quite a long list lol:
Stevie Wonder
The Temptations
David Ruffin
Marvin Gaye
Barry White
James Brown
Michael Jackson
Jamie Foxx
Justin Timberlake
Missy Elliott
Chris Brown
Trey Songz

The list goes on and on and gets more random with time! Lol

If you could tell our audience one thing about yourself, what would it be?

That I’m an R&B artist/singer/songwriter who is awesome at what he does but has no issue with learning more about the music business and when I get to where I need to be, I can easily show someone else how to get where they want to be in this music game.
