Hey… I won’t speak as a third party person and will keep it as real as it gets. I would first like to thank everyone that’s listening to my music. It means a great deal to me as I am the sole creator of all my music; songwriting, arranging, lyrics, plus play all the instruments (drums, bass, all guitars, keys, percussion, lead and back vocals) and engineer all the mixing and mastering. And of course with some awesome featured artist.
At a very young age, I was always tuned to music and absorbed all kinds of styles from jazz, rock, latin, pop, fusion but always had a connection with R&B Soul/Funk. At the age of six, I did my first gig at the Penthouse Night Club in Montreal playing trumpet alongside a record from the Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass Band as a special attraction between band sets. Made $70 bucks in 2 nights…Woohoo!

Over the years, I played drums for various bands and in 1996, started a business www.solodrum.com which is still going strong today.
After a lengthy break from music, it was always in the back of my head to start recording my ideas and finally got the engine going.
I released my first album ‘Here It Is!’ in 2016 featuring the lovely Donna Blunt who sang lead on five tracks.
Album#2 ‘Free’ featuring the awesome Mary Dee.
Album#3 ‘Funk It’ featuring the hip sounds on sax, Orville [Dr. Sax] Thompson and the groovy Chanda T. Holmes (vocals on the song ‘Dance’) oh yeah!
