What Are You Working On Now? Any Future Collaborations We Can Look Forward To?
I recently joined forces with a songwriter from the South, who just had a hit single with Alicia Keys this past December. We are busy in the studio, knocking out more hit songs for TV, film and other recording artists.

The song got such amazing feedback from the general public, that we decided to release it as a single. It's available on iTunes and most online Music sites/stores. It's also posted on my YouTube channel.

What Has Been The Biggest Challenge In Your Career Thus Far?

How Has Social Media Influenced Your Career As An Artist?
I love it and I hate it. Like so many artists out there, we lost control of making money off our songs, as people found ways to bypass buying our CD's in the store and downloading them for free online at bootleg sites or downloading our Youtube videos. However, with Social Media, we as artists have found ways to promote ourselves and sell our music without the assistance of a Record Label.

Any Advice For Young People (Men or Women) That Want To Succeed In The Music World?
Don't worry about trying to fit into the "mold" of what others think your music should be or sound like. Too many young artists out there try to sound like other signed artist instead of being true to themselves and their art. Also, never give up...it takes work and being persistent. Think outside the box, and don't let the "No's" stop you.
What Would You Change In The Music Industry If You Were A Top Music Executive?
I would change the stigma about looks and age. True talent doesn't have an expiration, nor does it care what you look like. That's shallow people that can't think outside the box, and have no clue what taking risks are all about.
