Blues, Music Artist : July 2nd, 2014

Starting my singing career in 1974 performing in my grammar school talent show, I’ve been a singing my whole life. Vocal ability is a family trait, as my Dad, who still performs in and around Kansas City, and my late mother both love to sing. I’m a self thought musician, learning Bass & Lead guitars, Drums and Piano to avoid trouble as a teenager. I was fortunate enough to be able to share the stage with Blues Legend John Lee Hooker when I was 17, and from then on performing has been a way of life for me. I bounce around the country with a father & son rock band before returning home and expanding on my versatility, so I joined a local musicians union as a singer available to sing radio jingles, of which I received my first assignment in 1994 as the vocalist for the Missouri Lotteries Pick-3 campaign. That same year, the band I was a member of was selected to perform as actors for the Toyota Corporations Big Spring Sale. Although falling in love with the art of the voice over, music continued to hold my heart hostage. I put doing voiceovers on the back burner and continued to pursue my musical career. In the three decades of performing, I’ve played for and opened for such superstars as B.B King, KoKo Taylor, Johnny Winter and War. In 2006 I released my first solo CD project entitled Best Kept Secret, where I had the #1 song for two weeks on Southern California radio and received rave reviews in both the US and Europe.

I was signed to Quinn Records in 2012, where my music continues to gain momentum heard in over 26 countries.
