Favorite Local Band: I’m going to say “Favorite Local Artist” and I’m going with Colin Tyler. He is absolutely incredible. The one word I can use to describe his music would be “epic”. I haven’t heard musicianship like this in a very long time.

I listen to virtually any and everything, but some favorites that come to mind are Nile Rodgers (and anything he touches), Prince, Michael Jackson, D’Angelo, Jamiroquai, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Larry Graham, Marcus Miller, Ethan Farmer, Esperanza Spaulding, 311, Incubus, Beastie Boys, Lyrics Born, Biggie, 2 Pac, Alicia Keys, Dorian and Uriah Duffy, Colin Tyler, etc. There is so much that I’m forgetting, but find me in person so we can chat!
