He now brings his distinct, versatile sound to Platinum Soul, and cites Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Frankie Beverly, and Nat King Cole as his greatest influences.
This soulful crooner hails from "the great state of Ohio," and earned his musical stripes by crisscrossing the country and performing big band, jazz, blues, funk, country, rock, and rhythm & blues, which all contribute immensely to his remarkable stylistic range.
