Staying “Real” Means Acknowledging YOUR Roots

I'm Always Diggin' On My Roots

I’m Always Diggin’ On My Roots

For me, it’s all about creating and improvising.

Even though I am jazz infused, I still listen to the styles other than jazz that I grew up with. Those styles in fact, are what drive me as, they are what propelled me into my musical journey to begin with. I truly believe that acknowledging my roots keeps me grounded and allows me to stay “real“.

I tip my hat whenever, I can… it makes me feel connected.
