Born and raised in Marion,Ind I fell in love with music around the age of five and have been singing since then. I started playing the saxophone in the seventh grade.While in the Army, and stationed in Germany, I joined a band called Mellow Maddness, where I sang and played in the horn section. After returning to the states, I went to Detroit College of Business receiving my bachelor's degree, but all along trying to bring out the music inside of me. Accepting Jesus at the age of ten, I have always enjoyed gospel music and tried to write gospel music in the traditional way.
From an early age I have always been driven by the goal to achieve as much as I possibly could, during that same time my granddaddy was a huge influence in my life.

I have been singing in various blues bands since the age of 20 building my confidence, listening and exploring different styles of blues whilst finding my own voice and style.
