I do a currently unrecognized category of Christian music, that I like to call Contemporary Worship. It is basically worship music that pulls it's sounds from any musical genre that I feel like pulling it from :)

I am not bound by what people in Christian music circles say that Christian music is supposed to sound like. I simply play what the Spirit leads me to play, and write what the Spirit leads me to write. What it ends up sounding like, could be country... could be jazz... could be soul... could be pop... could be blues... could be whatever. It isn't "white" or "black" - it's just worship.

The first single of my debut CD Junky Closet, entitled "Surely," is currently out in all digital music stores. I am looking for a couple studio musicians & vocalists to finish the entire project.
