I was given the opportunity to create a podcast for The Why Radio (thewhyradio.com) based out of Porto, Portugal, where I was asked to pick some songs that inspire me. The records I selected give me life and help keep me steady on the path of the gospeldelic funkbox legends who sang and played with all of their soul. Their music continues to inspired me as I start almost everyday with headphones on listening to all types of music. The music I create is influenced by so many different artist and genres but there's something about funk music that my father instilled inside of me from his record player that I'll never be able to shake.
I'm proud to present to you....
