I have been fortunate enough to play my brand of soulful pop, R&B, acidjazz, jazz and entertain audiences throughout the Pacific Northwest and beyond. My original compositions offer a refreshing new sound; drawing from the soul of our collective musical history, and building on that to find something new, which can authentically express my thoughts and emotions. Some claim my sound is both vintage and current.
It began many years ago during a time abroad with my family; where my 13 year-old self and two friends entertained a packed courtyard in the heart of Bucharest, Romania, with our guitars and vocal harmonies. The enthusiasm of the friends, neighbors, and family gathered there left me with a lasting desire to entertain, and began my quest to connect to others through music.
Another very impactful event occurred many years later during one of my performances on the deck of a local pub (I was playing in a duo at the time called “Mother’s Acoustic Soul”). There was a stirring in the pub because someone well renowned in the music world had stopped by, and before I knew what was happening, Bonnie Bramlett (of Bonnie and Delaney) was asking me if she could sit in for a set. We said of course, and once she started singing the place was transformed into this state of amazing energy, where an enthusiastic crowd could hardly contain themselves. It transformed our performance that night, and it transformed me forever.
I have also been fortunate to play with many extremely talented local musicians over the years, and they have inspired me in many ways. In addition to them, my influences through the years have been varied, and include the likes of Marvin Gaye, Jamiroquai, Herbie Hancock, Robert Glasper, Sade, Justin Timberlake; etc (there are so many more). I listen and learn from these great artists, and from that I find my own voice and inspiration.
I hope you enjoy my music, and I’m always grateful for your listening and feedback. Write me at email@example.com
