The influences for SoLa Groove, lIKWUID eKLEKTIK and Tom T & Co come from south Louisiana and beyond. Between what was going on musically in Louisiana and what I've been drawn to, I have been exposed to a world of music.
On the more progressive side, these influences can be heard in the music of SoLa Groove. A combination of instrumental textures, poly-rhythms and counter melodies are the driving force for the most part. There are however, rhythmic subtleties that dress some songs..simplistic in nature but just as effective as a gentle moving river.
A mixture of influence with Tom T & Co including R&B & Jazz overtones on top of strong, simple Reggae rhythms as a base. Melodically, this can go from sophisticated with lush background harmonies to simple and sweet.
More than anything else with SoLa Groove and Tom T & Co, everyone involved made it a point to enjoy themselves. We do have fun. Grab a cup full and enjoy.
Previously SoLa Groove and Tom T and Company, my two pages are in the process of being consolidated on one page..as you see here. I still perform and submit songs to both groups, but song writing is what I put most of my time an energy into. So here I am.. The newest song writer/producer with Human Musique Publishing and CD's along with Arnoux Desir, we are about to embark on a long and fruitful journey into the wonderfully diverse world of music.
