HERO is a tribute to some of the people who have helped shape me into the person/musician I am today, my boss for many years, Beyoncè, my all time musical idol, Stevie Wonder, my musical mentor and one of the most inspiring musicians on the scene, Steve Wilson, and my saxophone hero, Sonny Rollins.

It features an incredible band that I’ve been together with since my Juilliard days; Mat Jodrell on trumpet, Mathis Picard on piano, Dan Chmielinski on bass, Roberto Giaquinto on drums, and Melanie Charles on vocal.

The music on this album comes straight from my heart; a combination of 8 original compositions and 4 "covers/standards" are inspired from experiences at Juilliard all the way to traveling the world time and time again, to living in Tuscany for a few months last year. I truly hope that it inspires/moves you in some way, and cultivates some good in the world.
