Flak is straight up, straight to the point, hard worker, family man. He has an insight on personality (great discernment); can tell what kind of person you are just by meeting you.
Why this name?
Flak was my nickname when I played with the Precise Band. You never know when you might get hit with a little "Flak".
Do you play live?
Just let me know where. I most definitely love it! My special moment was playing saxophone at my grandparents' 50th anniversary.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Gets artists like me out there and known to the public. More eyes and ears to hear a variety of music. There's not much opportunity for some people to hear certain genres of music (like Christian Jazz) if they live in different areas of the country or world.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Fo' sho' ("for sure" - in case you don't understand the lingo). Make a substantial donation to my current label and I'm good to go!
Band History:
Flak has a unique bio/profile. He's been musically inclined since birth, practically. His parents were music educators who birthed two musical geniouses!

Flak started performing live in the band, "Bailey and the Boys" in 6th grade, playing saxophone. Played in concert band in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade, which was part of the James E. Pope project. Played alto and tenor saxophone in concert and marching bands in high school. During this time he learned to play trumpet, drums, flute, bass guitar, and various percussions. Was in Who's Who In Music and the Honors Band all 4 years of high school, under the direction of C B Bailey, Jr. Played with H2O Band. Started as a sound engineer with Precise Band, then progressed to playing saxophone for the band.

After being away from music for about 5 years during military service, Flak met his wife, Karen, who gifted him with his first keyboard. This is what catapulted him into writing music.

From time to time, Flak has played with various local bands in local night spots. He answered the call to write for the Lord, then started kickin' it with his brother, Alan B, at What Da Word Say Records. This is the great history of "Flak"!
Your influences?
Other than the Lord Jesus Christ, my father, my mother, and my brother are my musical influences.
Favorite spot?
One of my favorite places to play is Baltimore, Maryland ... because the people are live!
