Story

I am an independent musician from Piqua Ohio. I play bass guitar, guitar, keyboards and drums. I also record, compose, arrange, edit, mix, master, produce, and perform my own original music. Everything that you hear in my music from playing the instruments to the production is done by me. Growing up in the '70s and '80s, I was influenced by the music of Prince, Roger Troutman and Zapp, Bootsy Collins, the Ohio Players, Sheila E, and Larry Graham. I was interested in funk, jazz, rock, gospel and classical styles. Today I am inspired by independent artists and bass players such as Nik West, Ida Nielsen, Freekbass, and Dumpstafunk. Besides being known for my original funky style, I also focus on having a positive outlook on life and making people smile and laugh with daily motivational quotes and jokes. My ultimate goal is to be able to create and perform music full time, I enjoy sharing my music and positive message with others, music is not only my passion but my purpose.
