As a composer, keyboardist, and singer he is heavily influenced by Stevie Wonder and Donny Hathaway. Like those legends, he incorporates social and spiritual messages into his uplifting sound. His talents reflect a broad range of musical knowledge, including artists with a deeper connection to jazz; as a vocalist alone, he has been favorably compared to Al Jarreau and Mark Murphy.\nHis harmonically rich, self-titled debut recording has been a favorite of the BBC’s Gilles Peterson, and other DJs and R&B fans who dug beneath the surface of commercial radio. The album received the Soul Artist of the Year award from Jazz FM in London.\nHe has performed to enthusiastic audiences at The North Sea Jazz Festival, The Umbria Jazz Festival, The Saratoga Jazz Festival, Ronnie Scott's in London, Billboard Live in Tokyo, The August Wilson Center in Pittsburgh, PA, The City Winery in Atlanta, Blues Alley in Washington DC, Jazz Alley in Seattle, and The Iridium Room in New York City.
