  • About me

    I was born in Brooklyn and raised in South Texas and my musical prowess and affections are reflected in the marks of my upbringing. At the age of fifteen I began playing professionally heading up My own jazz quintet and since then I've toured, recorded and performed all over the world. I've had collaborated and performed with world class artists such as Sean Paul, Martha Reeves, Rudimental, Kano, Laura Mvula, Coolio, John Newman and Snarky Puppy, to name but a few.

    I'm the founding member of Brassroots which has been the major-league player in the revival of the UK contemporary brass band scene. Brassroots has enjoyed top 40 success across the globe as well as the UK and picked up a no.1 in New Zealand. I also manage the subsidiary business Brassroots Records and the brass band festival Brassroots Brass Band Bash which ran successfully for over a decade.
