Inspired by all genres of music. My current song ‘Locked or Free’ is a Prince inspired funk driven song.

As I write the lyrics I envision the genre of music. I’m really just driving done the road of funk inspired by Prince.

Prince and David Bowie. Be who you are musically regardless of what the trend is at the moment. Be original.
