Born in Chicago. Raised in Atlanta. Live in Los Angeles. I heard music, melodies and stories in my head as a child. They never went away and I hope they never do.
After experimenting with drums, piano and other instruments in my teens I began my love/hate affair with the guitar. So, there it is: I am a soul singer who plays guitar. And sometimes: I am a guitarist who sings soulfully.
Drawn to the blues after hearing songs by Son House, Robert Johnson and others and growing up at a time when Prince, Parliament/Funkadelic, Stevie Wonder and other musicians were stretching the boundaries of popular music I began to understand that music could not and should not be limited by our often narrow views of what it should be.
