Reaching for the Box
Born and raised on the South side of Chicago IL, I received my education and training in the art of music from the Chgo Public Schools and City Colleges. Hands on experience in numerous bands of various styles, studio recording projects and musical collaborations, spurred the rise and the formation of my record label ''Rhythm Around the World Records''. Starting with drum beats and jazz rhythms at the age of five, and banging on the pianos in the homes of my parents and aunts and uncles, a door, among many doors was opened to me, and I developed a deep appreciation for musical composition. To a great extent my desire to compose music would come and go, but over the years the echoes of my good friends would actually inspire me to continue on in a musical direction. Now, with the release of my second musical work, this being my first full thirteen song CD ''Reaching For the Box''.... I find myself pleased to be able to share it with you. As a lyricist, music composer and performer whose target audience ranges from eighteen to eighty by combining old and new school vibes and crossing over to everyone who loves good music. I find that my task is to embrace the hearts of people with the sound of the sound of music.
