Drum Love Album

The project

In 2015 I began composing for a new album. I put togethor a new group called "The Funky Cherokees".  The music is very Funky. The Cherokee reference is because my great grandmother was full cherokee indian and I felt a strong need to include her spirit into this project.

In 2016 I began rehearsing the group and sharing the compositional ideas with. This group is unlike any I ever put together before. It will have a horn section that is an integral part of the music this time.  All of the musicians were carefully chosen not only for their great musicianship but also for the warm chemistry they bring.

I have been touring the world as a freelance drummer for many years with well known Motown Artists such as The Four Tops, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas; Soul man - Sam Moore; Blues Artist - Eric Bibb, Popa Chubby, J.J. Milteau.. to name a few. And I have enjoyed and learned alot along the way.

I have also recorded a few solo cds over the years.  But because of being consistently called to tour with such great artists, I never had to time to focus on my group. This new album marks a new direction in my career. With this album I will place this music and group at the top of my  priority.  I might still play an occasional show or short tour as a freelance drummer.  However it will not happen at the expense of this new project.

 

This new album "Drum Love" marks  an important shift in my future.  This is why this cd is very important and special to me. And I would love to have you be a part of this historic changing moment in my career!

 

I appreciate any support you can possibly do. Thanks for helping me to spread some love and joy in this world.

 

Peace and blessings!
