Description
It's just me, my keyboard, and some really cool music tracks for me to sing on. Everything You will hear is original material by me. I play the keyboard, I sing, and for peple who are looking for a "full" sound(drums, bass, instruments, etc.) I have tracks that I sing over and even a couple basic drum beats/bass lines that I fill with my vocals and keys. I don't like to put myself under one particular genre. I am capable of successfully performing rock,alternative, pop, hip hop, r&b, jazz, dance, and religious(christian alternative-pop & gospel). Like any decent artist, my songs consist of all types of tempos(fast, slow, etc.) and the style & lyrics can please an audience of teens as well as young adults and even parents. Along with my own material, I am also able to quickly learn and perform covers of your favorite songs so long as I am given the list of songs at least 1 or 2 weeks in advance to the occasion. I have never done any parties but I'm sure I can. I have, however done public meetings, special occasions, and have written multiple songs for 2 weddings.In all honesty(and complete humbleness) I'm positive that my eclectic character and my exceptional musical skills and talent will please just about anyone who hires me for a gig and make them want to tell there friends about the great time they had!
