Yes! ever since the mid nineties I have played live as a Band Musician. Touring most of the Globe but as a solo act I have done several shows locally & abroad. I have had several special moments. Maybe one day you will hear about my most special moment on 60 Minutes.
I am inspired by a lot of Artists from various Genres. Some names that comes to mind are Stevie Wonder, Al Green, Donny Hathaway, Otis Redding etc. Some of my favorites from my home country "Jamaica" are Dennis Brown, Toots Hibbert & of course Beres Hammond.
