This was the time that really nurtured me musically. It shaped how I think, write, produce, and was basically my first experience with actually falling in love with songs. No politics, no charts, just CDs and playlists and singing at the top of my lungs. I put together this project for a couple reasons: one, to merge some classic R & B with contemporary production; but also, to re-introduce myself.

Enter ‘Summer Of ’95’, my homage to some classic R & B songs. It’s a little something for you to get to know me better. I decided to go back to what I love and the road led me to this. It’s the music that I grew up on, that I always go back to, so I wanted to share it with everyone in my own way. I even got Ricky Tillo, Anthony Wright, Fergus Chow and Ginette Claudette to lend their talents to a song or two.

To my die-hard fans, I apologize for the delay but there is much more to come. And to those who are new to me, here’s my first foray into who I am, and where I’m going.
