As a songwriter I believe that music is a spiritual frequency and being a chameleon in different genres is a gift I would like to share. As in artist I have sang over 200 libraried home recordings of songs and song ideas. My first work in 2008 began singing on my own instrumentals, these instrumentals were of r&b, reggaeton and alternative sounds.
I come in many additions to the game.
Vocal arrangement, songwriting, composing instrumentals are my specializations.
