At this point I had been playing guitar and bass at Ne-Yo’s studio for 2 months.  We start on this beautiful song with a string section and I lay down a bass line. I leave the studio around 1am and go about my business. The next day, one of Neyo’s producers calls me and tells […]

We open our laptops and close our doors.  We unlock our phones and bolt shut our minds.  Does knowing the lunch, outfight, or current location of a “friend” make you and that individual more connected? Closer?  As we begin to make a turn into a voyeuristic social construct, I think we actually lose touch with […]

It was considered necessary.  We humans used to understand that the body needs breaks.  We run our bodies’ digestive systems 24/7 with no breaks! ..and we have the nerve to wonder why sickness keeps spreading, and why we are “so […]

I describe his music, the music we’re working on, as a very gritty yet old school R&B.  A very much youthful, street sound mixed with […]
