Born in Georgia, raised in Texas, I have been in a wheelchair all of my life. I use my struggles to produce some the most original and creative beats and songs out there. Musical talent runs through my family, so I feel blessed to have that Gift (which inspired the name for my first album). I am the first in my family to put out a CD, but the it was their support that helped me to do so and I thank them. I hope that all who listen to The Gift will like it and be inspired to do something new, different and exciting with their lives. My influences span a wide musical range starting with My Aunt Diana (Singer/Pianoist) Ben Tankard (Pianoist) John Legend (Pianoist/Singer) Timberland (Producer) Phil Collins (Singer/Producer) Kirk Franklin (Producer/Chior Director) Ronny Jordan (Jazz Guitarist) Art of Noise (Jazz Group) and it goes on and on.
