Born July 25th, 1974, the youngest of three children, in the small town of Pozzouli, just outside of Naples Italy, on the Mediterranian coast. Born with a Lymphatic Cyst the size of a small watermelon, he was flown from Italy to Germany, and then onto the United States by the age of nine days... he was dying!

Ill for most of his childhood, he would spend most of his days with his mother, sleeping on the breakroom floor of her work. Next door was a music store, and when he was well enough, he would emerse himself, day after day, in the instruments. Just before his ninth birthday, he received his first guitar, and while sitting on shop floor plucking away.. being turned onto the sounds of everything from The Who, to Sabbath, to Chet Atkins and Earl Scruggs from Marfin Gaye and Aretha Franklin to James Taylor and Bob Dylan. Music was something he found, that would take his mind off of the pain that had become his daily companion.
. In the Mid nineties, he moved to Seattle Washington, were he was introduced to a new audience, and a new way of thinking, writing, and hearing music.

Moving back to his hometown of Charleston in the spring of 2007, with a refined sound, back to his roots, relying on deep honest lyrics, coupled with a voice that is being coined, "The Most Soulful / Powerful Voice" to come out of his hometown of Charleston, South Carolina in 20 years, with a mix of blues, country, funk, americana, & jazz.

Signed with Inde label Sweet Gum Records in association with JEFFERSON COKER productions in 2008
