MW is an internationally known artist and vocalist. MW has been honored and had opportunities to meet and greet legendary singers/vocalists from across the world. Recently, MW decided to be more proactive musically, while learning more about the music industry, as a component of the greater economic engine. MW believes there is a need for some good ole' school vocalization aligned with 70's, 80's, 90's music/compositional trend and a firm R&B genre structure to produce a "Cool Soul" genre ...

It's A New Day... with MW

My music arrangement ability began at about 6, when I rearranged a gospel song, "Thank Lord" and performed it with my cousins for our grandfather's appreciation... Through music research, I learned that my voice is an instrument. So I have been a vocalist for about 33 years. I became an official songwriter in 1993.

The First Concert I ever went to was a Gospel Concert in 1979 at the age of 6. The Gospel Concert was in Garysburg, North Carolina. This was the first time, I grow in love to wear suits during performances. It was a memorable concert for me to see and hear my father sing with his brother and cousins, as the "Gospel Travelers of Garysburg, North Carolina", for the first time after hearing their music as a child.

The biggest musical influences growing up started with the Gospel Travelers of Graysburg, North Carolina and all the Gospel Music Legends of this era. As I reflect, this was the beginning of musical sounds the shaped my understanding of singer(s), songwriter(s), and music industry artistry. I mainly listened to gospel music and soul genre music as a youth. So you can imagine... Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye were the top artist(s) in rotation in my surrounding. There were alot of bands, as well, like the Commodores, Slave, Stylistics, Temptations, Delfonics, Isley Brothers, The Jacksons, The Supremes. In 1989, as a member of 3 men music group, Male Image, MW was greatly influenced by each member, as well as, all the local music talent during this era. The 80's was an era, when soul music was becoming more universal. As a result, I had a wide range of musical influences. From the R&B/Soul Genre: Glenn Jones, Howard Hewitt, Freddie Jackson, Miles Jaye, James Ingram and Luther Vandross. From the Soft Pop Genre: Michael McDonald, Phil Collins, Hall & Oates, Bee Gees, Tears for Fears and Human League. From the Jazz Genre: Grover Washington, Jr. George Benson, Herbie Hancock, Kenny G, Gerald Albright, Najee, and Kirk Whalum. These genres of music help me artistically to shape the nuances of my sound as a group member and solo artist.

Hi MW!
Thank you so much for the connection. It brought me to your beautifully soulful song, "You Make Me Feel". Love, love that classic R&B groove, and your sweet vocals, are just so smooth and reflect past great artists such as Marvin Gay and Curtis Mayfield, both of whom, are my very favorites. Best to you in all of your musical endeavors! Love your work!
