What is your favorite part about being an artist? Is it songwriting, performing, recording, something else?) Tell us why. Having the ability to influence people in a positive and powerful manner! It’s a pleasure as well as a responsibility to inspire! Songwriting is a beautiful challenge and performing is the art of conquering the undivided attention of The People! Recording is the classroom where I bring to life my creative ability in such a way that the listener can relate and enjoy as well as become a genuine supporter. Can you tell us what being in the recording studio is like for you?:
It’s like a sport where I have to level up in order to make sure I am on the starting rotation and not just making the roster! Practice Prevents Poor Performance = Preparation! I am absolutely in character mode and the energy is always excellent. Great for social media content.
Okay, this a fun question. When you are not doing music, what else do you enjoy doing? I totally enjoy business and fully understand that you have the ability to create opportunities and that is what I do consistently when I’m not doing music! Creating ways to help others raise their levels of confidence and support! I am always churning business opportunities even if it’s not pertinent to music.
Who do you admire most in the music scene today and why?
I really love Chris Brown! I admire Ludacris! Outkast is my favorite Group of All Time! I truly admire Master P and Snoop Dogg from a relatively close comparison to life growing up in the South and obstacles to overcome! I admire Lionel Richie and Stevie Wonder whole heartedly! Mr. Clarence Avant is the God Father of Urban Entertainment his ground work gave artists like myself the platform for greatness
Can you tell us what song you've written that is the most emotional and describe the meaning behind it? “I’m Dreamin” it was the original idea, from the beginning of my interest in music and It keeps me intuitive with my mother who is Resting In Paradise! She was my everything and my most outstanding supporter in LIFE! She influenced so many lives in my community and surrounding areas with her beautiful spiritual voice and her Walk In Life and How She Treated The People She Encountered regularly! Her Motto was “Treat People The Way You Want Them To Treat Your Children” and so that is how I conduct myself and I also teach her teachings! The title itself is my reality and I’m still Dreamin, only it’s coming into a script for my real life and music journey.
Are you working on any new material right now or what's in the works for the upcoming year? Yes I am currently working on a few Cover Songs which should be pretty fun and able to make some serious progress in the Pop Charts arena! I am also working on my 2022 Untitled Album as well as The “All I Need” National Promo Tour Looking to land on The Billboard’s New Artists Watch List.
