MYSELF defies genres while re-defining originality. His musical stylings have been described as COUTURE (tailor made to fit every one). MYSELF's sonic moshpit encompasses raw-like-sushi punk, organic hip hop, gumbo funk, hot buttered soul & future classic alternative rock! His music speaks for itself communicating a language that stretches from the muddy Mississippi river to the historical temples of Japan. Describing MYSELF breaks down stereotypes, boundaries and labeling which challenges categorization.
The rebel rocker has worked with multiple platinum and Grammy winners such as, Arrested Development, The Roots, Public Enemy, blues maestro Chris Thomas King, and countless other industry veterans. MYSELF has been featured on MTV JAMS, FOX TV, MTV Japan, CW Network and in magazines such as Billboard, Living Blues, and Whoofin. Watch for MYSELF's cameo appearance in the upcoming documentary "Pocket Change" featuring Academy Award Winner Oliver Stone. In addition, producer and multi-platinum music icon, Nile Rodgers who produced hits for Madonna, Sting and Duran Duran recently signed MYSELF to Sumthing Distribution.
Couture Music Wear is MYSELF's own imprint/boutique record label/fashion house. He will be releasing his own recordings and soon to be producing, writing and developing for other acts as well.
Never one to be shy in front of the camera MYSELF has 2 major film projects coming out soon. 'Behind The Wheel' (music documentary) featuring Oscar Award winning director Oliver Stone will be making its debut at the Los Angeles Film Festival and Sundance. MYSELF has a cameo role sharing his personal views about post - KATRINA life in New Orleans. The other film project MYSELF will be featured in is a street drama titled 'Order of Redemption' starring Academy Award winner Tom Berenger and Platinum recording artist Busta Rhymes. Early 2009 MYSELF will be releasing his DVD
'Gutter Punk: A Day In The Life With MYSELF'. The exclusive DVD will contain his 2 hit videos, bonus band footage, MTV commercial clips, MYSELF on tour in Japan and rare behind the scenes making of his album which was recorded at the legendary Chung King Studios (recording home for Rick Rubin, Nas, Sublime, Lauryn Hill, Black Eyed Peas, Kanye West and classic hip hop icons Run-Dmc). Music supervisors, film licensors and TV consultants have been soliciting MYSELF's music for co-branding, cross marketing and advertisement opportunities. "Music is the universal language that speaks to the soul, but comes from the heart," says MYSELF " and I am fortunate and blessed to be able to position myself as an artist in today's volatile ever changing music climate". His band and MYSELF are planning to hit the road and tour extensively in the coming months focusing on a fall/winter college tour & the international festival circuit.
