I was 12 and carried a stack of 45's to the party, who knew it would lead to this.
Some say that you can't be born with music as a part of who you are, I say that's not true. I received the gift at birth (trust me), son of a Motown session musician I felt like I needed music to keep me going. I started writing at the age of 16 and joined a little studio group, till the relationship went up in flames. I kept at Dj'ing.
The big change for me came when I was trying to get a gig and someone said " He only plays one type of music"... well I come to learn I didn't play what "She" liked, but it did make me think. So that it never came up again... I became even more educated on Theory, History, Artist, Producer, Trends, Writing, and Name That Tune.
I love music in ever shape of it comes in, and I hope that never changes.
