No, I don't play live.
My taste is quite ecclectic: Phyllis Hyman, Alicia Keys, Sade, Dianne Warren, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Gladys Knight, Sting, Beyonce, Lenny Kravitz, Anita Baker, Brian McKnight, et. al.
Yamaha Keyboards, Steinberg, Sony Acid, & Cubase software, Boss Mixer, Korg & Roland audio modules, etc.
My goals are: to write for current and up-and-coming artists, to have my music heard in tv/film/radio projects regularly, and give a flawless Grammy speech after my name is called!
