Starting young…
I have been playing drums since I was 5 yrs old in church! And I started playing organ and piano about 12 years ago.

Dallas, Texas…
The music scene her always has something going on. But for me I have my hands full playing for my Church and writing and learning how to produce my music. So, I don’t get out much and I’m also a family man so that pretty much keeps me going and focus. Places to go? Tell me about one fun thing you like to do that can be music or non-music related. I love movies and video games. I have a collection of about 500 plus movies and i enjoy playing my Ps4..So, when Im not doing music then Im home watching movies or playing my PS4.

Our Love…
Well overall this music was created during a dark time in my life. I was going thru a divorce and I needed a way to deal with the pain.. So I turned to Jazz music. (iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/our-love/id994783041)

Social media…
I feel as a Indy artist social media has become my marketing tool as well as a great source of finding information like “How to be apart of Behind the Music” .

Overcoming Challenges…
Yes, it took a lot for me to put my music out there. I was afraid that no one would like or understand what I have created. I had to step out on faith and just do it. So, I did!

 I would love to have 5 minutes alone with…..
The jazz group FOUR PLAY or Paul Hard Castle !!! Why… I just love all their music. FOUR PLAY is my all time favorite band to listen to. When I listen to their music I hear all the little details that help to complete the song and really set it apart. My next CD will be a taste of what they do! Well at least I’m going to try but they are my standard in which I set the bar at.

Creating Music…
I realize that there is music for everyone out here to enjoy no matter what type or genre. I actually really tend to just go with my own flow and set my own path when creating music, so when I’m working on music I hear and pull from many places such as gospel as well as jazz.

How do you continue to challenge yourself…
I keep learning, I never stop learning.. I want be better at everything pertaining to music. I seek out people who can help me to get to the next level!

What are you most afraid of…
Not trying!! I rather try and fail then not try and always wonder if I could have.

Simply reach your goals you set…. Then set new goals and go after them…
