Recently after attending @ThehippieHavenmia , I got to sit down and talk to one of their lovely open mic host about his passion for music, black men, & facial care. The conversation was dope and unique, so check in below and learn more about him just like I did.

Walk us through your background- Tell us more about you and your music

Like most little kids with an imagination, I grew up singing into a pretend microphone and performed live concerts for my action figures. I remember cutting the grass in my back yard with my portable CD player singing at the top of my lungs dancing with lawn mower. My mother would yell from the house to tell me to stop singing and maybe I could finish my chores before the sun set. Just as much fun as it was then, it’s just as fun now. Fast forward to 2019, me being the host at an open mic night at @TheHippieHavenMia every Thursday is a dream come true and a full circle moment for me.

What inspires you?

I’m inspired by the people I surround myself around. You’ll be amazed what friendships you can make from the support of strangers.

What are some of the obstacles you've faced and how has it made you better?

Life isn’t always easy but it’s worth living. I choose to learn from my decisions, maybe not the first time but eventually the bigger picture becomes clearer. As I’ve gotten older, all the wisdom my mother poured into me is finally making since.

What is your 5 year plan for your music and for yourself?

Hopefully we’ll have a line around the block on top of our already packed house at @TheHippieHavenMia.

What do you want people to takeaway from your music?

I want people to see that they can get on the mic too, especially at @TheHippieHavenMia. There’s no judgment, just love and support. All you need to do release whatever you’ve gone through (from happy memories to heartbreak, achievements and losses). Having a live band behind me helps me express myself in ways I’ve never have. I want others to have the same therapeutic experience at least once like I have every week.
