Primary Instrument: Keyboard
I Grew up in Roxbury, Mass, a town just out side of Boston. I attended and preformed many talent shows in the Boston and surrounding areas, I played with some pretty cool musicians. I later moved to Wilmington, DE were I studied at the Christiana Cultural Art Center.
I studied Jazz under Robert Boise Lowery and became friends with some of Wilmington's finest Jazz musicians. While in Wilmington I hooked up with a band called the Wizards, they were a model of the group Earth, Wind & Fire. We did many gigs in the surrounding area. I also played for the Howard High Stage Band under the direction of Lonnie Thomas.
While attending Howard High I played for one of the area choirs, The Wilmington Chester Mass Choir under the direction of Ernest Davis Jr. Gospel was a new world for me, I learned a lot and became a stronger player. After school I moved to the Atlantic City area and became a showcase musician for any local or professional act or group passing by, whoever needed a musician. I met and became friends with a lot of celebrity players.
After a few years I moved to the Baltimore area and recorded my first record, it was for a gospel group named Called By Christ. I later produced a few more Gospel records and played with some area groups. As time went on I moved to Newark, DE and began recording and producing records and CDs. I now do preproduction work and am thinking about starting an Indie record label to help the musicians who just need a little push. So watch out for my label, soon to come. My latest CD is a solo project called Infinity--Smooth Jazz, the way I hear it. So pick up a copy and tell me what you think. I sequenced the whole CD just getting warmed up for my label. May God Bless You, Dre.
