You recently released a new track titled Grow Up. What can you tell us about the track and where can it be purchased?

Grow Up is an up beat indie-rock song with elements of ska-punk and reggae-rock. Grow Up has rich harmonious vocals and melodies that really give it a smooth touch. Grow Up is about trying to come to grips with maturity and dealing with the struggles of getting older, yet still acting like a kid! Thank you all for the support I truly appreciate all y’all! Keep the music alive!

Have you got any plans to release a full length album anytime soon?

Yes I’ve been releasing singles every first week of the month. I just started releasing my third solo album called Reinvention.

What is the writing and recording process like for you?

To be honest when I’m in the studio creating, it’s all about having fun, otherwise I don’t see the point. It’s not about what you do but how you do it, and I do it with a smile!

Do you plan to release any singles at any point in the near future?

Yes I have another single Rock N Roll releasing on FRIDAY December 3rd. It will be the 2nd single off the new album Reinvention.

You’re based in Los Angeles. What is the music scene like there at the moment and are there any local band/artists you can recommend?

So the music scene here in Los Angeles has definitely made its comeback since the pandemic. I’m getting my band back together to start rehearsing for shows in 2022. If I could recommend a new dope artists it would be DENM here from So Cal.

What/who influences you most as an artist? What have you been listening to recently?

One of the most influential artist would have to be Bradley Nowell from Sublime. I love his voice as well as his lyrics, they definitely had a huge influence on me. At the moment I find myself listening to Mozart and some Waylon Jennings.

Has the pandemic hindered your work much?

The pandemic actually was a golden opportunity for me to really have the time to focus back on my music, I definitely took advantage of this unfortunate time.

Do you have any tour dates lined up?

No shows or tours lined up but be ready 2022!

What can people expect from one of your gigs and why do you think people should come and see you perform live?

The band and I definitely bring that energy that will bring the house down, sometimes the music sounds better at our live shows than on the album. Basically we bring that high powered energy!

Any last words for the fans?

I just want to thank y’all for the continuous support, I truly appreciate all of you have given me the time and chance to be in your lives musically. I feel honored and blessed, I love all y’all and appreciate all the support, Thank you!!!
