What got you into music, and if you had not gotten into music what would you be doing today? I started noticing I loved music very early around 5 years old, when I started recording solos and outtros of songs from the radio on cassette tapes and then writing my own lyrics to the songs. My mom also noticed and began to encourage me to sing. When I was 11 she took me to audition for a theatre production called “Rainboworld” in Toronto, written and directed by Salome Bey, who is known as Canada’s Queen of Jazz. The production launched the careers of Deborah Cox, Sate and myself along with many others. I lived with her in the summers for four years and she was my greatest mentor in music. I have been singing professionally ever since. If it wasn’t music I would be playing lacrosse professionally. My grandfather is Ross Powless and known as the Wayne Gretzky of Lacrosse. Also my Uncle Gaylord along with my grandpa are only a few Father Son’s inducted into Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame. I actually picked up lacrosse again and won 2 Ontario Senior C Lacrosse Championships with The Six Nations Tomahawks in 2019 and again this year in 2023.
