ABOUT

Former lead singer and keyboardist for The Main Street Connection based in Columbia, SC. Looking to join or start my own r&b/funk/soul/neo-soul band. My former band was a rock/funk/soul/r&b & originals band. We were together for approx 7 years and the gigs became fewer & fewer and playing together just fizzled away. Not where my heart truly was, doing outdoor events and free parking lot gigs. My heart is r&b/funk/soul/neo soul in nicer venues.

I write originals, do covers and play fairly decent keys but my goal is to front one of the tightest funk/soul/neo soul bands in Columbia but also be able to fall back and play keys when needed. I think I have something unique and different to offer Columbia musically.
