Sugar a Collection of Sweet Songs
I started playing the guitar when I was about 13 years old. Originally I started playing piano/keys because we had a piano in our home that no one played, but once I picked up the guitar that was it. I knew that what I held in my hands was a gift that I could never thank God enough for. Throughout High School I played in Jazz band, at church, and in plenty of rock bands with my peers, Paradox Trend, Freezer Burn, Ground Zero (aka Psychoanalysis) just to name a few. During the summer between my junior and senior year in high school, I attended a 5 week learning session at Berklee College of Music in Boston Mass. An amazing time with amazing musicians, learning something new 24/7. Toward the end of my senior year in high school with no plan, an opportunity came up to travel with a group called 'UP WITH PEOPLE'. Basically a traveling musical production/educational program. Kind of like AmeriCorps but add in a musical show. I toured for one year doing over 100 shows in the USA, Canada, Sweden, Denmark and Germany. About 6 months after that tour ended I was asked by 'UWP' to be the Band Instructor for one of the touring casts for another year long tour. The second year Tour took us across the USA and Canada again, as well as Switzerland, Luxembourg, Germany, Belgium, France, The Netherlands and Liechtenstein. In April/May of 2000 I auditioned and was hired to play guitar, zither, and the chapman stick with the Blueman Group in Las Vegas. My debut album 'Sugar ... a collection of sweet songs', which you can buy right here has been 3 years in the making. It rocks so, buy it, love it, live it, eat it, breath it.Rock on soul brothers & sisters!! Peace, Love, God Bless.
