What's up? I'm just a person who's deeply in love with music, and writes and performs as a hobby. I appreciate all types from jazz to hip-hop, and from heavy metal to classical.
I've always loved to sing, but I discovered the magic of songwriting in 8th grade when a wonderful music teacher of mine, Mr. Michael Minard assigned us a song composition project. After that I've never stopped writing... In my senior year of college I took an independent study in songwriting with him, and I really hope to enhance my piano and guitar skills in the future. The closest I have to a studio is my computer (I bought some recording program from Best Buy), so I don't really have much yet. I'll try to record more songs soon!
I personally like singing R&B, but I'm influenced by all talented artists. Everyone has something that I admire somehow. My favorites include Stevie Wonder, Mariah Carey, Michael Buble, Luther Vandross, Brian McKnight, Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Jordan Knight, Stylistics, Musiq, Neptunes, Floetry, Alicia Keys, 112, Mary J. Blige, Alanis Morissette, Fiona Apple, BUSH, Pearl Jam, KoRn, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Dave Matthews Band, Live, Nirvana, System of a Down, Incubus, Lauryn Hill, James Ingram, Outkast, Simply Red, Bob Baldwin, Quicy Jones, George Benson, Will Downing, Ray Charles, Frank Sinatra, Diana Krall, Bobby Darin, Maroon 5, Jamie Cullum, Harry Connick Jr., EWF, Craig Chiquico, South Border, Usher, Blu Cantrell, Black Eyed Peas, Acoustic Alchemy, Lee Ritenour, BlueManGroup, Tonex, TLC, The Wallflowers, No Doubt, Jill Scott, Joe Satriani, Kanye West, JayZ...the list gets longer every single day!
Let me know what you think...:)
