At the age of 17, I moved to London, England to pursue my dream of being a recording artist. In September 1987, within weeks of my arrival, I recorded my first demo tape. Hundreds of recorded songs and over 25 years later, making music is still my undying passion. Music saves my life daily.
As I reflect on the last 25 plus years, this was not the path that I envisioned for myself, yet it outdoes so much of what that courageous, yet naïve boy from Newark, N.J. could have ever hoped for. I vividly remember staring at the stereo in disbelief the first time I heard my song “Swing” by The Deff Boyz on the radio. I also remember the excitement each time I saw my first music video in rotation on MTV Europe. Who could imagine?
Were there highlights in my music career? Sure, too many to mention. But 25 years later, the ultimate highlight remains to be so spiritually linked, the absolute joy I find in the process of creating songs. The sweet icing is the connection to a FAM who respects me as an artist, many encouraging me onto my next CD release, ready to support with their cheers and dollars. For me, this is priceless.
Thank you for listening to my musical journey. I couldn’t be more proud of my discography.
I pray my efforts in music, entertainment and activism stands as encouragement to always chase your dreams, to create the best you, to live life passionately, and to enjoy the journey.
