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 remember almost every piece I have ever played. I like to freestyle and can play off 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 lived in LA during college and went to shows every weekend ranging from Morrissey to Stevie Wonder to India Arie, Ben Harper, STP, Devo, UB40, Simply Red, Eric Clapton and so many more,….
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
