ABOUT

I have devised a way to generate a band sound in four different genres, jazz, rock, gospel and blues. I enjoy it a great deal and the sound is amazing. The music is 40% original and all of the originals are Christian based.
In the songs above, I'm playing all of the instruments and doing all of the vocals.
