Former member of Chasing February and Ducado Vega and Bloodrich, I have crafted his talents since 2003 throughout the Dallas local music scene. However with my growth as a person and musical evolution, I decided that it was finally time to show the world a story that has been a few years in the making.

In writing for the EP “Something We Need?” I channeled some of my earlier influences in Incubus, Jason Mraz, and Dave Matthews. And over the two-year span that it took me to piece together these particular songs, I found myself experimenting with many different styles. Never having performed as a solo act, I found myself torn and in search of who I was as an artist. I often thought, “because I can rap I should do that”, or “I need a rock band for anyone to dig my music”. But somewhere along the way I re-discovered the great storytellers in Bill Withers, Otis Redding, and even Ben Harper. This was when I realized that this is what I wanted to be as an artist. Too often today artist get pigeonholed into being someone that they are not to please the multitudes and make money. But for me, especially as an African-American musician, I want to show that there are still black singer/songwriters and that you don’t necessarily have to do hip-hop.
