As a child my Dad was my biggest influence with regards to what music I listened to. So for him he made sure I listened to Brook Benton, Dinah Washington, Art Tatum & Oscar Peterson.
When I got older Mr C was my next musical influence as he’d discovered rare groove and he wanted me to be like him. So I was given Sylvia Striplin & Don Blackman to listen to.
Then Mr C’s older brother showed me house music which I thought was wonderful. Within all of this massive melting pot I also have a healthy love of soca & calypso.
