What to Expect
Coming to a PhiLLy PhiL performance show the audience can expect excitement, thrills and an emotional roller coaster driven by my experiences told through music. My audience can expect me to share my everyday personal life experiences as well as thoughts with them through song. Because I am personally impacted from the music I create, the audience gets the chance to connect with me live, in their faces, instead of just through audio and or device. Energy is what I give at all my shows to my listeners. I like for the crowd to feel my emotions and lyrics whether via radio, television or live in their living room. I also believe in artist whom perform live should bring a slight enhanced change up in the songs their listeners love very much. I like for the audience to anticipate hearing specific songs but I also enjoy seeing their faces light up when something minor but noticeable is added to the live performance track they love dearly. I am very professional in how I conduct business with customers as well as selective. I am also positively motivated and driven, ambitious and determined when it comes to presenting a memorable performance. With any and everything in life that I am involved with I always place my best efforts on the front-line. I don't believe my performances are second to any performer out today, so when I take the stage you'll take notice!

Tear Mines Off” created a buzz in the local scene of San Diego all the way to Arlington, Texas.
In 2011, “My Introduction (Where It All Began)”, was an hip hop album ahead of its time and represented the whole West Coast with tracks like “Chuck T’s” & “It’s Me” giving a 90’s California resident or a present person at that time a California feeling.

Additional Booking Notes
I carry with me my own personal cordless microphones.
I don't provide multi-colored lights at my shows but do appreciate them when they're available.
I would need for a surround system or audio system or mixing board to be available upon hire at the designated location.
When performing without a band I perform my music via audio cd or personal DJ which depends on what you the customer wants which can be discussed upon hiring due to difference in pricing.
Sometimes I bring a lady or two fro props at my shows or sometimes I rock the stage solo.
A stage is always great and preferred when performing but not always necessary.

Influences & Inspiration
I truly believe I am influenced by everything in life, not just musical artists, not just songs and not even just an experience but whatever I see and it touches me in any way is what influences me to write and produce music.
