How did you get started in the music industry?

I was born into it. That’s all I ever knew. I was always around it because of my dad, who is a part of The Williams Brothers.

You’ve had the opportunity to be a drummer for The Williams Brothers, background singer for  Eddie Kendricks of The Temptations and Tony Terry. You’ve even shared the stage with Luther Vandross, Kool and the Gang and Bobby Brown. What was it like growing up around so many legends?

For others, it would have been exciting, but for me it was normal. I was used to it because I was on the road with my dad up until high school.

By the time you were 16 years old, you had worked on projects and produced music for Toni Braxton,  Young Bleed and C-Loc, 12 Gauge and David Hollister’s single of the 90’s, “My Favorite Girl”. Now, you have your own solo career. How has the touring life been for you?

Pure hell. Haha! It’s time-consuming.You have to be energized for every show even when you are tired. No one enjoys being worn out, but it has to be done.

Tell us about your new release.

I’m excited about Mississippi Motown. I’ve been getting great reviews so far. It includes 18 tracks with various song styles ranging from blues and soul to R&B. It also includes features from Cupid and Jewman.
 I produced, wrote, arranged, and performed all the songs, vocals, and instruments.
What’s next for you?
Touring… I will be working this album for the next year.
