"Music and rhythm find their way into the secret places of the soul" ~Plato
I was born in Baltimore, Maryland of Scots-Irish and Cherokee heritage-music has been my constant companion since I can remember. I also had a deep passion for books (and the power of words) that would one day lead to writing my own songs.
In my almost 30 years of performing live music, and recording I have had many highs and lows. And many, many artists have inspired me along the way! I love all things soulful...old blues, jazz, motown, gospel, reggae...voices smooth as velvet and rich raspy ones that can rock my soul.
Music has been a spiritual journey-just like my life-it has grown as I have. And you will find various universal themes in my songs. Currently, I am performing in the small intimate venues that I love best. Also I do inspirational speaking and singing for the causes and groups that I support. In my next CD project I will return to my acoustic roots, blending once again the many genres of music that I love.
"In a prepackaged world, the live performer stands supreme. whether in a great arena, or a tiny pub, the excitement of the living artist is palpable. Great artists turn their feelings into music. Enjoy the sensation!"-Patrick Lindsey
Please visit my "Funky Deva Homepage" on the links bar on the left of this page. Check out my videos, and you can leave me a message and say, "Hello!" Take a minute and leave a review here on CDBABY...it really helps the independent artist to get noticed. I hope my music lifts your soul and inspires you to follow your own dream and to "NEVER EVER" give up!
Peace to all~
