Go into detail on why you decide to choose music as a career.
Being a music lover & a serious one since the 7th grade, with over 14,000 albums since then. It was a natural progression into the creative process of original music.

Brief us about the recording of this song.
Rehearsing & recording of “Stay For Awhile”, compared to our other songs, was a more daunting task. Just getting everyone involved, band members and recording engineer, in the same place, at the same time, was a nightmare. Family commitments, illness, work, etc.
Tell us the story behind the song.
“Stay For Awhile” originally was meant to be a duet love song. But as fate had it, it wasn’t meant to be. It was a blessing in disguise, it turned out to be a more emotional and personal journey.
State your area of specialization in music.
Lyrics and arrangement.
Tell us how long it takes to finish a song from the start.
It varies pending on the circumstances.
Go into detail on how you develop your lyrics and melody.
Starts off with a topic/subject. Then the mood and melody come into play. I work on the melody, chorus, harmonies, and hooks. What types of instruments?
Discuss music generally in full detail.
Just like the lyrics to my next song, “The Tribute Song”, “Music good or bad, happy or sad, can’t go wrong”. Uncle Tadashi & Da Boyz, try to stress that every song has a catchy, sing-along melody. Also, try not to fall into a predictable style and sound.
State your five favorite genres of music.
’60s-’70s Underground Rock- Influenced my early teen years.
Hip/Hop & R&B – For the beat and relevancy.
90’s Grunge- Particularly Seattle groups.
80’s New Wave- Cool British-style sound.
50’s-60’s Hardbop Jazz. Fave- Hank Mobley.
Discuss your rehearsal.
I like and feel comfortable with our recording engineer, Pierre Grill. He makes everyone feel comfortable with his sense of humor and bringing out the best in everyone.
State your favorite musical instruments.
Guitar and Sax.
Describe the chemistry between you and your fans during a live performance.
As of now, we’re just a recording and not live band. Like I’ve mentioned earlier, everyone has their own life and agenda to life. So it’s next to impossible, to have a regular commitment and availability to perform live.
Discuss your personality in full detail.
I tend to be soft-spoken and always love being creative and working on projects. Was and still active in sports, so competitive in nature. Participated in individual and organized sports from a kid. Football, baseball, basketball, team tennis, karate, surfing, wave skiing, etc.
Tell us about your musical background.
Not proficient in any instrument. Did play alto saxophone during Intermediate School (7th-9th grade). Still remember how to read sheet music, basic scales. Always say I’ll get a new sax and start playing again. My old sax keys tend to stick.
