I have been singing since the age of 5. I have been on stage performing since I was 8. I have taken vocal training lessons since I was 12. I have been singing for several decades (not to give away my age.)
In college, I received a choir scholarship. My last rock song I co-wrote with Dead Hello called 'Somebody to Love' won an award. I studied Audio Engineering at San Jacinto College. I have worked with artists writing songs and performing in theatre and clubs.
What was the first concert you ever went to?
I don't remember the first concert I went to but I can tell you the last most memorable concert. That was seeing Gary Clark Junior Live with Beyonce on the same stage at the Stevie Wonder Tribute in LA where a few years back. That was such a magical night.
What are you looking for from Fandalism?
I hope to share my music with others and hope we can connect on this platform and in real life at gigs.
What gear do you use?
I have an Alesis Electronic MIDI keyboard and a Gretsch Guitar.
My favorite piece? That is a really hard question. I love all kinds of musical pieces.
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
I have a lot but right now I am leaning towards Gary Clark Jr, Allen Stone, Lake Street Dive, The Dips, Alabama Shakes and Nina Simone just to name a few.
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
I am starting a new band and we will play some shows. One of the members of the band is my co-worker. The other band members and from mutual music groups online and we connected that way.
If you could jam with anyone, who would it be?
I have a list but to keep this short:
They are amazing songwriters and vocalists:
James Morrison the UK singer/ songwriter
Lake Street Dive
And to play guitar and sing with would be Gary Clark Jr.
What's the biggest audience you ever performed to? What's the smallest?
I think the largest audience would be around 100.
My most memorable one was at the House of Blues on the sunset strip which is no longer there. I had close to 30 people just by promoting the show. It was an amazing night.
