I have been listening to Brick since I was a kid and Jimmy Brown’s flute was always funky. It was such an honor to be able to play “Dazz” in tribute to Brick while standing right next to him at the #LegendaryAwards ! Thankfully, we were able to capture a bit of it… :)

I had the distinct honor of participating in a 2-day marathon recording session with Melba Moore!  Producer/songwriter Dennis Johnson and songwriter Zoiea Ohizep created two songs for Ms. Moore’s upcoming release, Forever Moore: It’s My Time Again and I performed the background vocals.  I learned so much from her about the industry (both music and theater) and of course, studio techniques.  Any time I can learn from a Tony Award winning, Grammy nominated veteran is time well spent!!
