Growing up in Guyana, South America, among my favorite horn players, in my early years, were Groover Washington, King Curtis, and Cannonball Aderly.
Like many others, my musical ability began under difficult circumstances. Music was not taught in my school, but despite the disadvantages, I was determined to learn. I made my first Guitar from scratch and learned to master it, then in 1967, I purchased my first wind instrument, an old Harmonica. It was my pride and joy, which I had purchased with a hard-earned .25 cents; and I played to my heart''s content. In the 70''s I progressed to the more traditional instruments, and began playing professionally.
I toured South America, The Caribbean and the West Indies with various bands. The high point of my tour was playing with the group that headlined for Lionel Richie and the Commodores in November 1979 and Candi Station in December 31, 1979, in Trinidad & Tobago, in the West Indies.
I became a believer and was converted to Christianity in 1981. It was the greatest thing that ever happened to me, which inspired me to devote my musical talents to Gospel music and Jesus Christ.
In 1985, I moved to the United States with my wife and two young daughters and lived in New York and in 1989 we moved to Virginia where I continued to be active in the church and my music. Sometime after arriving in the US, a relative gave me an album saying that my music sounds similar to the famous Kenny G., who has since become one of my favorite horn player.
*Joy at night, a Christmas Experience *, is my third album. In His Presence, (2000) and Golden Gospel, (2001). All three CD''s are available on the Web. *Enjoy! *
