I am a artist, singer/songwriter, producer born and raised in Bloomington Mn. I grew up taking vocal lessons, jazz, ballet and tap dancing. I loved drawing, painting, fashion, and design. From a young age I was involved with church choir and always excelled in school choir. They put me in All City Choir for two years and was in two school plays. I always loved going dancing at underage dance clubs as soon as I turned 14. A guys singing group The Shy Guys were looking for a girl group that I became a part of but it lasted through 2 practices. My friend Chaconas and I recorded two songs and started a group called Mixture. We played our songs for a panel of judges at Glam Slam but it didn't go anywhere. I sang at my aunts wedding and my friend Chanel's wedding. I recorded at Jim Parks studio on a song featuring Gwen Lewis called I Gotta Get On With My Life. I performed with a band at Stake N Ale and met producer Al Linder and we worked on about 7 songs, one that I recorded at Levi Cesar's house. I met Kirk Johnson and did a couple songs with him at his studio, one song called Nice And Slow. I started recording in studios at age 17. I bumped into Levi again and recorded at his house with his engineer. I worked with Lasalle Gabriel a few times. Recording at a house studio in Bloomington, at TRI-Cord in Eden Prairie, his studio in Mpls, and was a background singer in a live showcase he did at Glam Slam alongside a couple members of The Sounds Of Blackness. After appearing on Kryptic Records single "I Need Your Sex", I began writing in various studios fuzzy Slippers with Jake Rodriguez, and Ben Obi at Savannah Street in which I wrote two songs for girls he was doing demos on. I vocal coached one. I purchasing my own equipment. I've done session work for over 15 years. Thanks to OMC Music/Columbia Tri-Star two songs I wrote and sang ("Love Me Like You Do" and "Soul Love") which were placed over scene's on "The Young And The Restless" daytime soap. I began modeling and went to the IMTA convention in New York in 1988. I came back and modeled in a runway show for Aveda Institute and a broshure for Bashard photography. I did a few drops for KMOJ that aired, sang at the MN State Fair and appeared on a cable show after getting rushed on KMOJ's Rush It Or Flush It show. I've recorded many artist's in my studio and other various studio's. (Fame N Glory, Dante Pedro, Sincere, Infa-Aize, Big Grit, Tone, Lost Cause, Exclusive Ent, Isabella, Four Fam, Buddah Blessed, Get Down, Speedy AKA Da Dogg, Murda Merle, etc..) I did a commercial for first Dynasty with Polo and another for the Atlanta Music Showcase with DJ Evil E which was placed on Geffen Records Internet site. I started meeting producers via the Internet and around Mpls. Bruce Griggs aka Kota Bey with Linquei, King Envy out of Miami, and Superpower. I was doing between 7-18 tracks with them all. As a solo artist I recorded my own vocals and some production for my own cd "Dance With Me" in 2006. "Here We Go" in 2007, "Love Is" and mixtape "Global Warning" in 2008, and "I Got U" in 2009. After signing with manager Clayton Moore of "Venture Entertainment Records Group" and announcing my label "Yum Yum Records LLC" in 2009 on the compilation "The Hitlist". I had foot and knee surgery and moved in Dec 2009. I travelled to Chicago and performed for Stop The Violence and had a song on the radio in which we were interviewed by Darryl King. I started school at Minneapolis Media Institute in Edina, fall of 2010 and have since graduated with an AA of science in audio engineering June 2012. In 2013-2014 I promoted a mixtape called Imagination, as well as being featured on Shy Illa's cd with a song called "Sweat" and Skooby J Slimm's cd entitled Skooby G Slimm Skool Kalm and Kollective with a song called True Love also featuring J Isaac. I was featured on a song called The Bizness for a rap artist named AK The Block Boss. I worked in the studio with artist /producer Seanacy aka Sean Shades. I was called in to do a session with rap legends Do Or Die in which I was featured on two songs however the songs never came out.
After frustrations and let downs I began producing my own songs. Doing all the music production in Protools, recording my vocals and mixing. I've been getting spins on Flame On Radio for one I did solely called Right Here Right Now and I'm On Fire, a song produced by Ricky Hesser. I put my first song for sale on the internet produced by Shawn Jaros entitled So Good. You can download it from Cd Baby Music. I also worked with a great producer named Rocky Byrd with Blackbird Music on a demo song for Lady Gaga which was picked up overseas. A producer from Australia named Envy Prince collaborated on two songs with me. One that his group New Generation had already done and I recorded my vocals behind the hook Get Low also the title and a turn-a-round part. Then he produced a beautiful ballad with piano and I wrote Comeback. A DJ from Africa DJCMBAVILLE sent me a track in which I wrote the song Touch Me. Recently in 2015 I collaborated with Faleuch Wade a rap artist overseas in Senegal Africa on a track called How Much I Love You. I'm looking forward to future networking and solid business relationships that enable me to do what I love to do; sing, write, produce, and perform.
