I started out in '99 with an R&B Group. I went solo in 2003 and focused mainly on production and songwritting up till now.
I've performed at House of Blues at Downtown Disney, 14 Below in Santa Monica, Club Glam in Fullerton, The Block of Orange in Orange, University of Irvine, Alcatraz Restaurant, Brooks College in Long Beach, All Stars Club in Stanton, The Grove of Anaheim, the LAX Hilton, the Hollywood Hilton, the Barclay Theatre at UC Irvine, and the Aneheim Convention Center.
My main musical influences are my parents. Even though I haven't seen my dad since i was 6, I got my singing ability from him. My mom used to direct the church gospel choir when we lived in Compton, CA. I've been rapping since 13.
I've been using various different equipment since High School. I honed my skill with a Casio keyboard. I then went on to teach myself the Korg Triton, MPC 2000, the Asr-X, the Roland XP-80, FL Studio, Reason, Orion Pro, Acid Pro, the E-Mu MP7, Cubase SX, Nuendo, Digital Performer, the Korg Karma, and various other peices. I learn different styles of equipment so my style of music continues to evolve... I don't have a favorite. Also.. I make my own drums. I also learned engineering to give myself a different view on production. Being a singer and a rapper.. I will sometimes create a track based on the harmonies I'm feeling that day.
