The inspiration for this song, was that in today’s music; love is not highlighted as much as other subjects.

Any plans to hit the road?
Dates to be determined.
As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
As a indie artist, I brand myself by my unique, soulful vocal style! My songs are powerful, emotional, and I sometimes start the key higher than a lot of male artist. Most male artist start their first verse key a lot lower and softer.
Who have you been listening to lately?
I’ve been listening to Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Charlie Wilson, Lee Moses, and Major!
