SIRE....

This regal and dynamic artist captivates audiences with his unique soulful sound and imaginative theatrical performances. His smooth majestic groove fuses a variety of musical styles such as Neo Soul, Adult Contemporary R&B, Electronic House Music and more. Sire has shared the stage with seasoned performers such as Al Jarreau, Alicia Keys, Cee Cee Peniston, Evelyn "Champagne" King, Aretha Franklin, Ultra Nate, Sean Kingston, and Debra Harry to name a few. Viewing his photos, he seems to attract celebs where ever he goes.

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 Festivals, Miami's Winter Dance Music Conference and the House of Blues. His recent performance in "Being POZ: The Musical" was met with enthusiastic reviews. Sire also recently starred as the voice of GOD in a new stage production titled, "The Good People of Sodom and Gomorrah" The Musical by Christopher Smith.

Sire is also an active member of the "Life Choir" Gospel group directed by the critically acclaimed H.B. Barnum. Sire has appeared with the Life Choir at many major events from Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston's highly publicized superstar wedding to the 79th Annual Academy Awards and the Elen Degeneres Show. Sire has also recently appeared with the Life Choir for the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin at the Nokia Concert House and the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. He is also a featured lead singer on (Living My Life For Jesus)the Life Choir's upcoming CD release. SIRE can also be heard on the Soundtrack of a new romantic comedy feature, "The Other End Of The Line" starring Jesse Metcalf.

In his spare time, Sire has been writing and recording a Christmas CD to release in December 09, writing a screenplay based on his life, composing radio jingles and is an accomplished commercial artist and portrait painter.

A devout Buddhist, Sire is an active leader in the Soka Gakai International, a World Peace Organization whose central belief is the formation of value in society through individual happiness. He frequently performs at SGI's special events.

The past year Sire completed a successful national tour and will be a recurring guest star on the Cartoon Network's hit comedy show,"Tim & Eric's Awesome Show" Great Job! on Sunday night's Adult Swim. Sire will also join the cast for a live appearance at 40th Annual Comicon in San Diego summer 09. Sire recently appeared on the Oprah Show as a Karaoke Contestant. Presently Sire has been promoting his new compilation CD, titled "Strong Enough" which includes the hit single "Tell Me" now available on tracksource.com. He occasionally tours a Barry White Tribute Show with his 12 piece band, along with producing his local cable show. He is now embarking his first European Tour where Sire is very proud to accept his recent title as "The First and Only International Barry White Tribute Artist."

Whether on stage, in the clubs, on TV, film or radio, Sire continues to grace his audiences with charm, warmth, spontaneous wit, and song.
