Ever since Gumbeaux was born his love for music has been evident. He was nicknamed “Gumbeaux” in high school for his constant threats to gumbo out of the opposing teams while participating in football and wrestling. The “o” was dropped and the “eaux” was added to represent his Creole heritage.
Gumbeaux, a Baker, Louisiana native, prides himself on being a lyricist. His combination of Creole slang, Deep South Louisiana culture and smooth as silk flow patterns is what makes listening to his music enjoyable for people of all ages. His strategic approach to his writing methods can be compared to those of well renowned authors. One of his traits that stand out the most is his versatility. He has written songs that have tackled a wide variety of subjects, from the experiences and sights he has seen in the streets of Baker and Baton Rouge to songs asking the Lord for help in making it in life.
The South is at the top of the industry right now and its time for Gumbeaux to make his mark. When someone thinks of Louisiana they think of gumbo, the flavor of the South. With Louisiana’s culture, festivals and overall lifestyle incorporated into his music, Gumbeaux represents all that is the TRUE Louisiana!
