So, you grew up in Cleveland, Ohio. What area are you specifically from?
I grew up mainly on the east side. In the Shaw District.
At what age did you realize you wanted to get into music?
My Mother was a singer, she taught me my first song when i was three years old. I've been singing every since.
Did any of the famous Cleveland artists influence you at all? Such as Levert or The Dazz Band to name a couple. I know Eddie Levert. We were both in the same circles musically. I was more influenced by Jackie Wilson and James Brown etc.
Where do you normally record these days?
I do my recording in my home studio.
How would you describe your vocal style?
My style is my own, which i developed over the years.
What is your songwriting process like?
First I get a story in my head, then I imagine the music that would go well with the story. Sometimes the music comes first.
Do you write and produce for other artists?
I have produced other bands in the past, but have been spending the past few years developing my own music. Now i would produce someone if the music and project was right.
Do you perform live often?
I used to tour a lot, but have been spending more time lately recording and writing. I would like to perform again soon.
Tell us about your latest project.
I am recording a new album which is titled Eclectic, because every song is a little different. There will be twelve to thirteen songs. I am now on number ten. It will be for the most part a fun, up tempo album.
What can we expect from you in the next year?
The release of this album and more, and also some live shows. I am seeking backing for live shows.
