WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF SOUTHERN SOULS MVP

TK SOUL: BORN AUGUST 26TH. HOME STATE LOUISIANA. I BEGAN MY MUSICAL JOURNEY AT AGE 10 WHEN I DISCOVERED I COULD PLAY ANY INSTRUMENT I CAME IN CONTACT WITH JUST BY EAR. MY LOVE FOR MUSIC GREW IN MY TEEN YEARS, AS I WAS GREATLY INFLUENCED BY ENTERTAINERS I SAW ON T.V. AND HEARD ON THE RADIO. BY AGE 13 I WAS WRITING SONGS AND PLAYING GUITAR IN LOCAL AREA BANDS. FROM SCHOOL CHOIR TO CHURCH CHOIR JR. HIGH BAND TO HIGH SCHOOL BAND MY TALENTS GREW VERY RAPIDLY. I LEFT HOME AT 19 TRAVELING AND PERFORMING WITH BANDS IN BALTIMORE MD, BATON ROUGE LA, AND ATLANTA GA. WHILE IN ATLANTA MY PROFESSIONAL CAREER BEGAN. I GOT THE CHANCE TO PRODUCE THE SHOW MUSIC FOR THE STAR SEARCH MALE VOCAL GROUP GRAND CHAMPS EBONY.YEARS AFTER THAT I WAS PLAYING KEYBOARDS AND TALK BOX LIVE FOR THE GROUP UNDER 21( WHO LATER BECAME PROFYLE ON KEDAR/MOTOWN RECORDS) AND THE PRODUCER FOR PLATINUM RECORDING ARTIST H-TOWN SAW ME AND HIRED ME ON THE SPOT TO PLAY KEYBOARDS AND TALK BOX FOR H-TOWN. A FEW YEARS AFTER THAT ENDED I CHILLED OUT FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS AT MY CHURCH AS MUSIC DIRECTOR.SOON I HEARD THAT WILLIE CLAYTON WAS LOOKING FOR A KEYBOARD PLAYER. I MISSED BEING OUT ON THE ROAD PERFORMING SO I DECIDED TO APPLY FOR THAT JOB. I GOT THAT JOB AND MOVED UP RAPIDLY FROM KEYBOARDIST/BACK UP SINGER TO BAND LEADER AND PRODUCER. I WROTE AND PRODUCED THE POPULAR WILLIE CLAYTON TUNES “WIGGLE” AND “PARTY LIKE WE USE TO DO” TO NAME A FEW. 5 YEARS LATER I DECIDED TO TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT. SO I STARTED MY OWN RECORD LABEL (SOULFUL RECORDS)AND CREATED THE ARTIST TK SOUL, THEN WROTE AND PRODUCED MY 1ST CD TITLED “ONE WOMAN MAN”. THAT CD SPARKED A SOLO CAREER THAT HAS BEEN NON-STOP SINCE ITS BIRTH IN 2002. POPULARITY GREW AS I RELEASED MY 2ND SOLO CD (THE BAD BOY OF SOUTHERN SOUL) AND LIVE DVD (TK SOUL LIVE IN MONTGOMERY). THE RELEASE OF MY 3RD CD “LOVE GAMES” WAS THE TURNING POINT. THAT CD GAVE ME THE POPULAR TUNES “CHEATIN AND LYIN” “U RING MY BELL” AND “IF U DON’T WANT ME” ALL OF WHICH ARE STILL IN ROTATION WITH MANY RADIO STATIONS TODAY. MY 4TH CD “UNDISPUTED” CAME OUT THE FIRST WEEK # 85 ON THE NATIONAL BILLBOARD TOP 100 R&B HIP HOP ALBUMS CHARTS AND # 9 ON THE BILLBOARD TOP BLUES ALBUMS CHARTS THE WEEK OF JULY 14TH 2007, UNHEARD OF FOR AN INDEPENDENT SOUL ARTIST. NOW A NATIONAL ARTIST, THIS CD GAVE THE WORLD THE HITS. “PARTY LIKE BACK IN THE DAY” “IT AINT CHEATIN TIL U GET CAUGHT” AND “TRY ME”. MY NEXT CD “THE EVOLUTION OF SOUL” RELEASED 2009 HAS THE SOUL HITS “ZYDECO BOUNCE” “REHAB” "THEY WONNA PARTY" AND "YOU GOT TO CHEAT". MY LATEST AND MOST ANTICIPATED CD IS TITLED "LIFE AFTER LOVE" JUST RELEASED FEB 2014. I BEGAN EACH YEAR WITH MY ANNUAL CRUISE CALLED “THE SOUL SHIP” WITH CARNIVAL CRUISES.
