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

My musical journey started in primary school at the school choir,since then I was part of a super famous Israeli boy-band,later I moved to South Africa and there I won the first ever South African TRACE Music Stars competition. the show was mentored by Wyclef Jean and broadcasted on Trace Urban, the second largest music video television network in the world. After living in South Africa, I moved to New York City to continue his endeavors with Wyclef and pursue his efforts in gaining recognition in the music world. I was invited to perform at the Trace Urban Music Awards in Paris of 2015, after which I was approached by the American pop/R&B singer, Akon to sign to his label. Shortly after, the deal was finalized and I began working on my EP with songwriter, Mike Campbell. In the past, Campbell is best known for co-writing the song, Say Something, by Christina Aguilera and Great Big World. The first song I released “Crazy But Free” made it to the Top 50 Billboard dance chart, and the following single “Bad Reputation” made it to top 5 on national radio in South Africa.

The biggest thing you should know about me is that I’m an optimistic, My mom gave me a back pack full of love and confidence and sent me to go out there and make the best out of this world.
