This East-Tennessee native multi-talent grew up with the southern gospel sound of his idol Ray Charles. Furthering his musical education, he studied the stage presence and aural class of Brenda Lee, while traveling on her tour bus. He’s had his genre-spanning music featured in various films and TV shows and won a Tony Award for his role as Jerry Lee Lewis in “Million Dollar Quartet” on Broadway.
Highlighting the glory days of Motown with lively, gospel-dipped soul, his new single is bursting with vintage allure. Teasing his upcoming EP “Bad Habit”, expected to drop in 2020, the organic instrumentation of perky piano, bright organ, stirring rhythm and spirited brass create a bustling melody full of salubrious sunshine, while his classic soul-soaked vocals give it an exuberant glow of retro pizzazz.
