What gear do you use?
Functionable studio currently under construction.
What are you looking for from Fandalism?
Others like me who want to make good music either as an artist or band.
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
East Coast Hip Hop. In the 90s it was the biggest influence on me musically, so much that when I moved away from my hometown, I still searched for that type of music from stores in other states. I loved the jazz, the bass, the music composition in the 90s was phenomenal.
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
I was part of a reggae band in North Carolina, then I was a part of Peoples Army in Texas. PA recorded an album and we even did promo shows to get more coverage. A great experience that taught me alot.
If you could jam with anyone, who would it be?
A Tribe Called Quest, Zhane, Chuck Brown and the Soulsearchers, The JBs, Hall & Oates, Floetry, Jam & Lewis
What's the biggest audience you ever performed to? What's the smallest?
The biggest audience I ever perfomed for wasn't with a band. It actually was a wedding and the cathedral was packed, maybe 500-600 people. The smallest venue was in a college town over the weekend, around 70-80 people. The most memorable performance was in Houston when we covered for this upcoming group. The energy was enormous.
You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
Redman, Dare iz a Darkside. Redman is my favorite rapper. I hurried to buy this album as soon as it was released. It reminds me of growing up in my old neighborhood. The album is tooooo funky!
