"Urban Folk" My Origin Newton, Mississippi (Delta Blues) , Birmingham, Alabama (Gospel) to Bowie Maryland (Urban Folk Dance)"
Folk - Contemporary
This musical journey starts deep in the red clay dirt of Newton, Mississippi (Jackson Area) where my grandfather was born. My Grandfather placed a handmade Hawaiian guitar in my hands and placed my fingers on the strings to make a musical sound. Later joining in and falling in love with the rustic, unpolished chords of the Mississippi Delta. I beg you to listen to "The River Blues (The River Bends)" as I attempt to capture that original song as heard from my childhood. I feel blessed to have experienced the rich gospel music at his church Alabama, as well. Listen to "This World (Grateful)". Growing up in Nashville, Tennessee I dumpster dived for cassettes of hopeful artist thrown away by the many record labels there. I rode around town listing to hundreds of Artist. This is where I started to sing and perform and create my own songs. I look to sing about relationships and love. As the long title of the Album suggests this is my best swipe, swatch (A representative portion) of my life. I hope you enjoy the music and thank you for your support.
