His classic sensibility and non-formulaic approach can be attributed to years of absorbing the irreplaceable soul in the music passed down to him through the gospel music of the church he attended with his mother and grandmother in his native home town on the east side of Buffalo, New York. His drive and confidence were born from his desire to rise above the despair that surrounded him on the often-unkind streets of east Buffalo. The strength and unwavering integrity of his musical talent are obvious in his strong vocal performances that are touched by classic R&B rhythms and laced with the truth often apparent in Gospel soul. His vocal range, skilled writing and vocal arranging capabilities, as well as, his passion for the creation of rich soul music have won not only praises from some of the heaviest names in the industry, but also, many request from some of today's living legends.
