Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills.

I have been creating and performing music since I was 10. I went to the Rudolf Steiner school in NYC and have been surrounded by creative people and environments since before I can recall, always inventing new ways to express and comprehend the mystery of reality. Although I played various instruments in middle school I have no musical training past 8th grade & instead went to college for creative writing and literature at the New School. First and foremost I am poet, ink and paper is my foundation, language is my gateway drug into the dizzying highs of 360° art.

I grew up rapping and have had tons of silly pseudonyms. Going by my real name now feels more reflective of my current work & where I am as an artist.

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.

The genre we have created and continue to create is Futuristic Soul Music. MoTown in the future, pop art filled with a million whispers from beyond the veil. I am inspired by storytellers from a wide spectrum, Otis Redding, Tracy Chapman, Al Green, Herman Hesse, Wes Anderson, Kendrick Lamar, OutKast, Jemeriquai, John Steinbeck, Tom Robbins. our art is a living & breathing conversation with the immortals. The concept for Sâne Advîce is how following the melody or instincts is the only sane course of action in this life. I have attached The Book of Sâne for you to digest this piece of art more fully.

My whole life I have been riding to the bass line holding on for dear life, man, I’m always losing it people telling me, “fly right…” What I’ve found is that melody is the only sâne advîce and there is a greater plan at work, my only job is to dance down my destiny’s path.
