Bio

I have had many experiences that have led to where I am today. Most of us do. I am a songwriter who has been gifted with the ability to capture the feelings and stories I have lived and observed others living. My songs not only reflect my physical walk through life but they are the embodiment of my spiritual enlightenment through music. From the day I was born I have had a very powerful connection with God. He has carried me through encounters with moments of anguish, desperation, homelessness, addiction, love, lust, insanity, anger, and weakness. He has never left me long enough to become distracted by these moments and be strayed from my purpose. My songs are a reflection of these moments. In every song my intention become to relate to others on a personal level. I pray that others will receive positive energy regardless of the circumstance. I sing my songs with the hope that at least two people will be inspired, moved or renovated by the music.

My musical style is raw, rebellious, with a hint of “sweet and salty”. My genre is a pleasant dysfunctional mix of latin, rock, jazz, pop, electronic, and hip hop. My performances are polished before the show so that I can be spontaneous on the stage. I work with musicians who understand that music is a life and a calling.
I am currently working on my new full-length album, self-titled: “In Pursuit of Truth”. The songs that are featured have all been given to me. I write poetry and creative prose daily, with the intention to find inspiration for a song. Most of the time my everyday walk through life is what I am inspired by. This new album is a combination of: reflections of the war on terror, capitalism in America, Love vs. Lust and rising after a fall. I hope that people can relate and will be inspired to make changes in their lives for the better. I am expected [God willing] to release my new album sometime in March [2012].
Lastly, I want to offer you many blessings through music.
