Live Musician

I've traveled around the world as a veteran touring musician - I perform "live" as a Solo – piano bar style, Duo – with an added sax or guitar player, and full Band. I play with Atlanta's favorite party and event band, BAND X - a great high-profile band for all types of entertainment including parties, events, weddings, festivals, casinos, and nightclubs, as well as our "Party With a Rock Star" events.

On occasions I still play with the Atlanta band Java Monkey, and Atlanta Blues/Jazz Diva Francine Reed, as well as some other side projects.

Check out my calendar for my schedule!

Session Musician

As a recording session musician - keyboards, pianos, electric pianos, Hammond B3, synths, background vocals and vocals - I'm hired to work on other musicians, artists, bands, groups, and producers recording projects.

Working in the studio environment is definitely one of my true loves. I really enjoy the creative process in the recording studio, either on a large or a small project, as both can be very satisfying. Through my career, I've been fortunate to have played on quite a few gold and platinum recordings.

Go to my Discography to check my recording history.

 

Studio Production

As a composer/song writer I'm constantly working in my studio - many genres from R&B, Smooth Jazz, Soul, Rock, Film/TV music, as well as Healing & Meditation music.

Some studio music sessions are projects for hire - while some time is spent collaborating with other song writers. But most of my creative time is spent on my original compositions - music being released on my independent record label and web site portal.

Go to Big Coffee Records for more info on current and future projects.
