Hicktown Romeo, Nobody'z Bizzness, Broken Dreams and Bryant C Project

I was born and raised in Versailles, Kentucky where I started learning to play the drums at the age of 5 years old. After taking private lessons for 10 years, I began playing the drums at my local church, The House of Prayer, and then started playing for the church choir. I then joined in my school band along with the jazz band. My other music experiences include R&B, Blues, rock, country, and Hard-rock and Latin music. My biggest influences include Jonathan “SugarFoot” Moffett, Chester Thompson and Mickey Curry. Since earning a degree in music education, I am currently doing Studio and Stage performances in a great known R&B band called “ Nobody’z Bizzness”. The material of our music varies from Marvin Gaye, The Commodores’, Temptations, Eric Clapton, Roy Kidd, Rick James and many more. I'm currently working Prod Rock Band "The Bryant C. Project" and Blues Trio Band "Broken Dreams". Over the past years, I have learned 3 important things: 1. Have the ability to play many styles of music: 2. Getting along with other band members: 3. and “less is more’ approach to drumming. I’m very confident that if I master these 3 things that I’ll have a long and successful career.
Also to add to my music career, I am currently playing for "Hicktown Romeo" a well known Country-Southern Rock Band...
