From my music, current albums, and future albums, you can expect a lot of improvising and freestyle’d lyrics. It’s what I like to do. I feel it’s music speaking the very truth of what it should be. As far as my newest album release, ‘in the making of…’, happens to be something I decided to put together as a sort of “EP” if you will for my latest music which now includes drum tracks and piano/other sounds, as opposed to just acoustic and vocals. I’m in the process of working on refining my sound, furthering my instrumental knowledge, and improving my music production quality overall. ‘in the making of…’ is simply the beginning of my new and future sounds to come.

 

 

Song name: She Said
Music Genre : Indie / Folk / Blues / Jazz / Acoustic
My song, ‘She Said’, is co-written with my friend who goes by “MR. N.I.C.E. MUSIC”. He came to me with the chorus, “She said she wants me now, she said she needs me now…” and asked me to collaborate with him. After improvising the chords behind the song on acoustic guitar, I freestyle’d the verses on a live recording. Soon after, I recreated the rhythm on a separate track, sang the vocals, and added drums, piano, and other sounds such as a shaker and backing vocals/chorus.

I currently live in Coral Springs, FL…
Where I’ve spent most of my life being raised. The music scene is a little dull here, there’s a lot of space between venues. And most public places that have music entertainment prefer cover song entertainment, or just playing the radio. Being born in Manhattan, NY, that’s where I feel I need to be to really get my music heard. Something about the city calls for a new experience with every visit.

The music business is great..
as long as you’re not getting scammed… However, that goes to say for a lot of things. Unfortunately, these days, I feel artists in general are taken advantage of. And because of this, we lose out on a lot of amazing art and creativity that could be exposed freely to inspire millions of people around the world. Other than that aspect of things, music and art is amazing and it has given me the ability to travel, inspire, aspire, and meet thousands of people along the East coast. I can’t wait to travel more, listen and learn of more music, jam and meet other artists unheard of, and have my music heard by much more as well.

I would love to have 5 minutes alone with….
I’d love to have 5 minutes alone with Carlos Santana, mostly because he’s still around and that makes meeting him in this life possible. Growing up, I’ve always heard his guitar playing and smooth lead riffs in a lot of songs I listened to as a child. I always thought, “man this dude can play…” far before I ever considered playing myself. I just loved his passion in what he enjoyed doing for himself. I’d love to jam with him and have a conversation between our guitars and us.
