I was born and raised in South Philadelphia, the youngest son of the first Puerto Rican Mummer. My family is musically and artistically gifted on both my parents side. As a small child I idolized my older brother Eddie and wanted to be like him, who played harmonica and percussion. I wanted to play harmonica like my brother, so at the age of six I hounded my mother to no avail till she got me a harmonica, I have played that instrument since. Later I taught my self guitar, flute,recorder, pan pipe and other things, My music is a mixture of the different musical styles that I was raised with, Rock, Blues,and some R and B with a little string band thrown in for flavor.
