"When I was six, my grandparents took me to a Barbara Mandrell concert at the Carolina Opry. That night I was so enchanted by how her music touched people. I don’t remember much of the music but I remember exactly how I felt. It all seemed like magic. I remember thinking that’s what I’m going to do when I grow up—I’m going to be a superhero and my super power will be making music for people. When I was seven, I received my first karaoke machine and some recording tapes I sent them to the likes of Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, NSYNC (still waiting to hear back, guys), and was constantly handing them out to my classmates, friends, family, and teachers. I think it’s safe to say that at 29 my music has come a long way since the day of my eccentric, homemade tape recordings, but the passion is all the same.
As a “Spiritual Gangster,” my mission with the music I make and anything I write is to raise my audiences’ vibration. A goal to convey empathy, love, happiness, understanding, passion. I want to create “feel good” tunes that anyone could play on a summer day, but I want to weave in songs about subjects that aren’t necessarily “cool” or “trendy”, and I want to make them appealing. I make songs about spirituality (spirituality as something bigger than all of us and a divine order, not religion), love, vision, resilience, unity, and hope. My music style is transcendental yet relatable—socially-woke lyrics meets hip hop, electronic, and indie sounds, some may even describe my music as “self-actualization with a baller beat.” Similar artists would be Sylvan Esso, Maggie Rogers, Ingrid Michaelson, Banks, and AlunaGeorge."
