Born in Mississippi and reared in Indiana, Sire began performing at the age
of ten. Although a shy child, he was able to overcome his fears by joining the church choir. At age 12, he won the lead role
in a school play titled, "The King's Toothache," where he first inherited his moniker. He was soon placed in Summer Stock
Theatre, where he made an impression on the audience with his slick body squirm as the Caterpillar in, "Alice in
Wonderland". His voice quickly dropped several octaves but he continued to sing in church and other public performances, in
his signature Bass tone.
As a young adult, Sire broadened his horizons and moved to California. One
day while sitting at a piano, he began composing music. His first effort, entitled "Look through the Windows," was played
for a theatrical producer and the song became the theme for a production at the Civic Playhouse. The success of the song confirmed
Sire's decision to make a name for himself in the performing arts.
While pursuing his theatrical career in Los Angeles, Sire won a role in a
Repertory Theatre production of "The Wiz" where he played the role of the Cowardly Lion. His performance was well received
and the experience opened new opportunities in the theatre and in other media such as radio, where he worked as a disc jockey.
Soon after, Sire hosted his own Cable Television Variety show where he performed
his original songs, acted in comedy sketches and interviewed guests that continues to air today. New opportunities opened up in television, film, and on stage. He began appearing in many films such as Steven
Speilberg's "1941", "Rocky II", "Barbed Wire", "Dance With Me", "Face Off" and he composed the song "Disco Maniac" for
the international feature film, "Psycho Sushi." His television appearances
include: "Profiler", "Murder Between Friends", "Clubbin" and "Good Morning LA" singing with the cast of "The Lion
King". Sire performed his hilarious conceptual staged comedy skit, "The Black Seed" at the West Hollywood
Halloween Festival which was hosted by Saturday Night Live's Julia Sweeney.
Sire's domain knows no bounds. He is equally at home in an intimate cabaret setting or large concert stage. Sire also makes
his mark on the Club circuit where he heats up the dance floors from Chicago to L.A. with his original dance tracks. His personal
appearance venues include: B.B. Kings Blues Club, The Hollywood Gardenia Room, The Hudson Theatre, Christopher Street Pride
