I am an independent artist, with roots in Blues, Jazz (early on in 60's), Soul, R&B, etc (70's onward).
Some, of my top early music influences are: Nancy Wilson, BB King, Al Jarreau, Patti Labelle, Chaka Khan, and, The Beatles.
I enjoy listening, to all genres of music, as long as its creativity, has positive, uplifting, and tasteful, content.
I have been composing and performing (cover and original material) in local venues, in Greensboro, NC, as a solo artist as well as in a band, for 30 years, and counting.
In 2011, I completed tracks, from a Hip Hop-R&B cd collab,(posted online Twittrax, Soundcloud, Reverbnation), under the (former) duo name, Soulflo, however, I am presently working, on my own solo project/s, to be released soon, (during that time, I was also known by the name of Renee Raspberry, now changed to, EnSpyre). More recently, (August), I had the privilege of being selected and sang, in part, "I Will Always Love You, (Whitney's version), in the audience (during break), at the live taping, of the "X" Factor, at the coliseum in Greensboro, NC. I Loved it!
Perspectively , with my upcoming releases, my hope is, to continue to inspire, bring joy and peace, to the "hearts" of any, (even if it's just one person), and everyone, who listens to my performances.
I am proud, to CATEGORIZE my music as, "Inspirational Music', which I OFTEN, refer to it, when asked.
Someday, (hopefully soon), I would welcome the opportunity, to work alongside, some of the music legends, or, any others, who may share my music objectives.
I am so honored, and thankful, to have a part, and the chance, to share my GOD-GIVEN music talents and dreams, and to INSPIRE, and, to BE INSPIRED.
