As you know I have been making and creating music ever since I was very little, always looking to come up with something unconventional and different. It has been a very long journey for me and a lifetime of practice, hard work, all kinds of struggle, loneliness, alienation and of course lots of creative experimentation in order to create something unique and fresh for y'all.
Videos, marketing and advertisement are not inexpensive so I appreciate anyone listening to this music and sharing it in order to reach many listeners and so it does not fade into Nirvana like my previous albums...

The last single "City Alone", engineered by Andrew Malin was released in August 2019 and recently shot to film by director Gülnigar Nurhikim (USC), and launched in November 2019 along with two more music videos "Ain't Nobody" and "Close", featuring RnB Artist Carmel Allison (Chance The Rapper, Childish Gambino, Katy Perry).
His new record is titled "Give Me Nothing", an intense and innovative heart-break song in which he re-defines RnB and pushes the envelope in an eclectic mix of Pop and Dance elements.
