Being one of 6 children growing up in Grand Rapids, Michigan Wilfred became interested and intrigued by music, especially the guitar. A local interior decorator John Schribner played acoustic and electric guitars began showing Wilfred how to play and gave him his first guitar. A few years passed when a local producer Tommy McGee of The TMG's showed Wilfred the formulas and foundation for making records, proper multi-track recording and Lee Cadena added musical direction, inspiration and exploration.
Joining Wilfred's first band was like a first crush...exciting. While being phased out of the group, it gave Wilfred motivation to really learn his craft...something he would ultimately do.
Steve Metcalf introduced Wilfred to the industry on a grand scale. He became a protégé of Father MC, who took Wilfred everywhere with him to work with notable artists, Arrested Development, Silk and even Usher! Realizing that production is the key Wilfred began that phase of his career and had the blessing of some of the best and brightest behind-the-scenes people to be found anywhere.
In the 25+ years of owing his own recording studio, Wilfred released his debut album, "It Could Happen" to critical acclaim in 2000. Turn the page to December 2017 Wilfred was once again primed and ready to release his sophomore album, "In This Life” and is currently touring guitarist for Ready For The World.
From his earliest and humblest of beginnings through present-day life, all while perfecting his craft, God saw fit to let Wilfred become the seasoned recording artist, producer and recording engineer that he is today.
