SoloR&BSinger/Songwriter

TiO's sound could be described first as original. It is Acoustic R&B/Soul with just enough Urban influence to hold the attention of the younger demographic. You will hear elements of Classic R&B, Gospel, Jazz and 70's Soul all polished with a Pop appeal and magnetic energy.

He is a graduate of the Arts Magnet High School of the Performing Arts in Dallas, TX and the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. TiO feels he has so much to share with the world.

"I feel that music should inspire, heal, enlighten and feed the soul. When musicians are serious about their gifts, we can harness the power to affect change in the world. Therefore, I intend to continue writing, performing, recording, teaching, learning and following my spiritual path of music wherever it may lead, because music is not just something I do, it is who I am."
