My current album is titled EMPIRE STATE WARRIOR. Being born in the Empire City/State, and also being a Marine Corps veteran, I thought it’d be cool to use my military photo as my cover art and title my album, Empire State Warrior, to stay true and authentic to who I am.

7.) Q: At the end of the day, all artists have something that drives them. What’s your daily motivation?
To be honest, I’m just an unworthy, humble servant of God first and foremost. So, being able to wake up is a blessing. I just want to be better than I was yesterday, so that I can be the best version of myself everyday for my children. I’ve been through so much and I’m still living and learning, but at this stage I’m my life, I put God first in everything that I want to do, in Jesus Christ’s name… respectfully.
8.) Q: When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?
I realized this was something I wanted to do professionally when I was a teenager, but I didn’t take things serious and to the next level until 2016.
