Biography

I’m the son of a twenty-plus year Vietnam Veteran and being raised in a military environment on Army bases across the nation, I was blessed to hear and be influenced by so many different genres of music. Influences that range from old school R&B, Rock, Hip-Hop, Jazz, Country, Folk and Pop. With that being said, my real passion was hip-hop. Growing up, I recorded demos and performed live with a few different groups around the Carolinas. Being a fan of Run DMC, Public Enemy, EPMD and the groups that pioneered hip-hop in the late 80’s and early 90’s, I always envisioned myself working as a part of a group and never made an attempt to try it alone. Unfortunately, none of the groups achieved more than regional success.

In 1995, I attended my first Stuck Mojo show in my home town of Columbia. I have known Bonz since middle school and a mutual friend of both he and I, told me that I had to check out the rock group that Bonz was performing with. I was blown away by the band and instantly became a big fan. From that point on, I was at every Mojo show that came through Columbia.

Even back in those early days, I had offered to write, perform or just help the band in any way that I could. On one beautiful day in 2006, Bonz phoned me and told me that Rich Ward wanted to have a few guest vocalists on the new Southern Born Killers album and that I was the first one that he had thought of.

    I think that the bio for Lord Nelson is confused with another artist. Lord Nelson was born in the island of Tobago (Trinidad & Tobago) in the West Indies. He is about 85 years old and is certainly not the son of a Viet Nam war veteran.
