ABOUT

Music is my favorite thing to do. I love working with other people and exchanging energy to make it sound beautiful.

I have a really good memory (for music) and I can play almost everything I have ever played. I like to freestyle and can play off from the key or just jump in when I hear it. I am classically trained so I have a good year for phrasing and chord progressions etc.

Influences

My mom was raised in the 60s and has really good taste in music. She used to play on a stereo system that play through the entire house when I was a child. I was raised on Motown, FleetMac, Simon & Garfunkel,... my mom played music all day, everyday. My first concert was Madonna when I was in fourth grade. Growing up, I went to so many concerts with my family such as Earth Wind & Fire, the Righteous Brothers, Blood Sweat and Tears, the OJays,... I love music and I am inspired by all artists.

When I was in eighth grade Dr. Dre dropped the album The Chronic. It was one of the best things I had ever heard in my life. I broadened in my horizons to West Coast rap and hip-and East coast rap.

I still go to concerts every chance I get, but the last concert I went to was Zach Brown. It was awesome.

Here are some artists that I really like but there are so many more that I like!

The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Luciano, Macklemore, the Judds, Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen, Norah Jones, George Michael, Ben Harper, Common, OutKast, Sarah mcLachlan, Jason Isbell,....... etc etc etc
