My parents were both griots.When I was very young, I watched my father play and my mother sing and I noted how my father taught my older brother to play the kora, but I was forbidden.
Currently, I’m finishing production on two records–the first is an Americana rock album produced by Ted Russell Kamp and the second is a side project with my frequent collaborators Josh Ricchio and Kolby Wade. The rock album is a more traditional band in a studio kind of vibe.
I did unstick myself, but I decided to change my entire career! Turns out, I had a life block. I was writing in the wrong genre for the wrong audience.
