Serious Nubian is a Recording Studio Moniker name that I use when i'm creating my music projects .I'm a Multi-Instrumentalist Instrumentalist Musician that uses the Bass/Synths/Drum Programming/Vocodor Vocals as means of expression and creating multi-layered keyboard patches along with some heavy rhythmic bass playing supplemented by Jazzy Funky type Instrumental grooves.
