The prodigious talent of this Grammy award-winning guitarist and singer has seen him often described as the new Jimi Hendrix. Touring the world multiple times since his debut Blak and Blu in 2012, the musician has become well known for his smooth vocals and alternative guitar sound. His songs have been used in popular TV shows, with 'Bright Lights' used in US drama Suits, 'Don't Owe You a Thang' in Clint Eastwood film Trouble with the Curve and 'Ain't Messin 'Round' featured in Identity Thief. The guitar ace quickly became a popular addition to festivals all over America, and in 2012, he was awarded Spin Magazine's Golden Corndog for performing in more music festivals than any other artist in the world.
