I am an old soul. I grew up to the smooth sounds of Earth, Wind & Fire, Confunkshun, Al Green, and other great old school musicians. Some of my fondest childhood memories literally has an oldie song playing in the background haha! My father is the amazing guy who introduced me to this awesome music. Growing up,he played it all the time so I would always hear it. These songs stuck with me throughout the years. As music producers today continue to create new sounds, oldies will always be one of the best music ever made. Hands down! This is what I consider "real" music, it's a mixture of R&B, soul, jazz, funk and disco. These are the melodies of my childhood that I will never forget and I will continue to keep it alive.
