Let's start with the name- Sulblk. I picked this name back in the days when dial-up internet was the only internet game in town- Sulblk is actually short for Sultry Black. I had my choice of one or two other 'nicknames' but I liked this one as a joke at first, then after awhile, I was just too lazy to try and think of anything else for the 'cable' internet email system, just added a few numbers and I was Sulblk for life.
Back in the day, my drumming started off raw--one teacher/friend taught me drum corp (just a drum pad and sticks--for speed) while another friend/teacher taught me on a seven piece drum set. Since he was already in a band and the drummer, his focus was on--jazz so of course that became my influence.
My practice sessions consisted of Sly & the Family Stone-(I want to take you higher - Stand), Herbie Hancock- Chameleon and E.W.F- Sun Goddess, Isaac Hayes and War. My diverse nature in music made me appreciate the passion of different instruments and where they would fit into a song. As time grew I really enjoyed Phil Collins. But--as with anything else, life happens and what I thought was the start of a career ended.
So I have started over--not with drums but software--a beginners Midi machine and a thousand tunes running through my head (it seems like)--testing the waters.
As time moves forward--my hunger grows, my eyes are focusing ---Stop-listen and think.
My taste in music ranges from the 1960's to 2017, which includes country- rap- soul- jazz and just about anything with a beat. I will most likely revise this short bio, because the one thing I do not do well in are--words--
Stay strong music nation
Keep your head up and your heart strong.
