My press release reads I’m bringing back the fun and glamour in music – with dance floor soul. Those elements to name a few are what I felt was and is missing. Always coming from an authentic place, this is where my spirit, which always guides what I do, led me. Over the coming weeks, I’ll be doing select interviews and press beginning with urban media outlets – with a diverse range to follow. “Nightlife” – It’s In the Music!

My Saturday night at Giorgio’s was truly a night to remember. Meeting the legendary Giorgio Moroder was like a dream. Dancing to his songs and productions as a teen including one of my favorite soundtracks “Midnight Express” – “From Here to Eternity”, not to mention his groundbreaking work with Donna Summer along with his production and writing partner Pete Bellotte. He and his wife Francisca were relaxed and friendly, as Giorgio’s Bryan Rabin too me over for the introduction quickly prompting me to ask “Do you mind if we take a photo”, after hello’s were exchanged. You can say that I’m never too cool for school to be enthusiastic and show that I’m a fan of the people I admire and enjoy as well.
“It’s In The Music!”
