What to Expect
In working with me, I would provide entertainment uniquely catered to your event, whether it be a party needing high energy Dance/Funk music, to intimate romantic ballads, to ambient jazz. I also pride myself on punctuality or organization skills. In working with me, I guarantee the utmost professional courtesy.
Born in the early 80's and raised from the late 80's through the 90's, I grew up listening to great artists such as Prince and David Bowie, but was also introduced to the incomparable talents of Earth Wind & Fire and jazz legends like George Duke, Michael Brecker, and Kirk Whalum. As I came into my own as an artist, my sound also included various Neo Soul and R&B artists such as Alicia Keys, Jill Scott, and Erykah Badu. Today I continue to perform primary as a member of the Table Salt Band as well as an independent artist.
