Native Memphian, musician, producer, composer, entrepreneur, AC was reared in a musical family listening to the sounds of Stax, Motown and 70’s R&B groups. Introduced to gospel and jazz at an early age, he attended the acclaimed Watkins Overton High School and continued his musical studies at the University of Memphis, earning a Bachelor of Music degree in 1985. AC continues to perform with numerous established acts locally and nationally. AC has performed with artists such as Vicki Winans, Beverly Crawford, Regina Bell, Ann Nesby, The Four Tops and The Temptations as well as host of local Memphis talent to include notable jazz musicians James Williams, Mulgrew Miller, Dr. Herman Green, Joyce Cobb, Ruby Wilson and Preston Shannon to name a few.
His many interests have parlayed into several entrepreneurial endeavors - but God ALWAYS has the last word. A life-long Christian, the music of the church has always been at the core of his artistry. He currently serves as a 11 year staff musician at Brown Baptist Church in Southaven, MS where he has faithfully served in the music ministry and other areas of congregational concerns. His debut CD entitled "I Surrender All" (2006) was birthed out of his lifelong experiences and his faith-walk with Jesus Christ. It features gospel traditionals, smooth originals and some head-bobbing music that will appeal to all generations. One listen and one will agree that his is an anointed talent – sanctified and destined to bless the body of Christ. AC is currently in the studio writing, arranging and preparing for his 3rd studio released CD. It is scheduled to be released later in 2018 and promises to satisfy the musical tastes of listeners from all walks of life.
In addition to his musical pursuits, AC is an avid technologist with over 28+ years of Information Technology experience. He most recently served for twelve years as Director of Information Technology Services for Church Health Center, a leading nonprofit health clinic located in Memphis, TN. He currently is the President and CTO of The I.T. Group, LLC, a managed technology services provider specializing in advanced networking and security services.
