As a teenager it was then I discovered the emotion of other instruments and sounds that married well with voice. I have always believed that music has no concrete origin but, yet, a universal language that we all understand. At eighteen, I formed my first band and experienced people's emotion towards music. Continuing in my journey, I signed with Arista Records, which opened the door for me to encounter the appreciation of music in different cultures. It also allowed me to work with artists that I admired as a young adult, such as Gerald Levert, Teddy Pendegrass, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Jennifer Holliday, Kenny Rogers, Alabama and Jermaine Jackson.
It was then, in my career, that I understood how to tell a story in its full range of emotion through song. Deciding to take a step back in order to come into my own sound was rewarding, as now I have learned to write and produce what I really feel. Over the past years, I have been blessed to work with some of my best friends: Jason Martin, Ben Holst, Mark Copeland, Rudy Vaughn, Chris Clifton & Tim Jackson. All of them taught me how to express my emotion through lyrics. After many venues have been my home, I thank those places in time for the time and now it is time for the world to experience the voice of tradition, Geoff McBride.
