Biography

So you want a Biography…Let’s see should I over hype it up, and try my hardest to sound like I’m the best thing since adding jelly to peanut butter or should I just keep it real?

I have recently (last 2 months) been offered a 3 to 5 year contract for 2 albums from an Independent label based out of Hong Kong. It is a multi part deal. (Management, Publishing, Distribution, and Record all rolled into one.)

I have not signed on the dotted line, as I am going to take my chances and hold out for something stateside. At least a couple of months after the Lions Gate Entertainment movie “Tamara” is released. I’m not banking on the Movie to propel my career, but it sure would be nice. It’s taken 13 years of suffering to make it here, so I think I can wait a few more months.

Worst case scenario, I have something to fall back on. (At least I hope)

I got started in Music for all the Wrong Reasons as a kid. I wanted to be cool, and get chicks. The dream of being a Rock star didn’t hit until 6th Grade. I was an above average break dancer in those days (lmao, I had lessons) and loved the attention, and thought, “Hey, imagine if I were a rock star”

I have played with some great musicians in my day, and feel lucky to have met them and become friends. It taught me a lot about the stage, performing, and landed me some “huge at the time” gigs. I got to open for bands like Godsmack, Sevendust, and Mudvayne.

So here it is in a nutshell.

I grew up on R&B Vocals
Applied it too Metal
Played in various bands, playing their originals
Took a break from bands (So that I could consistently move forward with one idea)
Have written more songs than you can shake a stick at,
Landed a deal to have two of my songs in the 2006 Film “Tamara”

Always looking for great writers, musicians, and entertainers to expand my ideas with.
