I Come from a family of musicians. My grandfather JB Maxcy was the first man to play harmonica live on the radio. -Atlanta Journal, Sept 22, 1923
I started singing in public when I was 3 years old at the corner barber shop.
I did session work around Memphis until 1981. Worked in Sun Recording Studios, American Studios, Ardent Studios, Sounds of Memphis, and Stairway Studios in Memphis.
