My niche as a vocalist and songwriter includes contemporary, gospel, inspirational, and socially conscious music. As a producer, I have produced everything from theme music for podcasts, motivational speakers, jingles, and Facebook promos to instrumentals that can be used in movies, commercials, plays, etc.
I am a singer/songwriter/producer. My instrument of choice besides my voice is the keyboard. I have been singing since the age of nine, playing the keyboard for about ten years, and producing music since 1998.
I studied vocal techniques at the Little Red School House in the village of Manhattan, New York. I studied audio engineering at Sheffield Institute for the Recording Arts in Phoenix, Maryland. In addition, I have performed music I have written and produced at The Apollo Theater, The Lincoln Theater, The WRAL Theater, The North Carolina Science Museum, and Wake Tech Community College.
I produced and released a version of the holiday classic "The Little Drummer Boy" in 2021. "Minister To Me," released in 2021, is an original song that I have written, performed, and recorded at my studio, Sound Cast Productions. It is a contemporary gospel up-tempo high-energy song that would have anybody moving their feet -tapping into the Caribbean and African roots while giving God the glory. In 2019 I produced a cover song, previously performed by Sam Cooke and the Soul Stirrers, "Jesus Gave Me Water," written by Lucy E Campbell. My second CD, "You're Everything To Me," was released in 2018. My first CD, "You Saved Me," was released in 2016.
