As an experienced stage technician, Uncle Nard understands aspects of stage performance and sound that many other artists do not, which pushes him to strive for high-quality performances each time he steps on stage or in the recording booth. Borrowing inspiration from some of his music influences like Chill Deal, 95 South, 69 Boyz, Quad City DJ’s, 2 Live Crew, Rakim, Run DMC, Jam Pony Express DJs, and Slick Rick—designated the “master of storytelling” by Uncle Nard—he fuses his fun-loving personality into the music he creates, while being determined to do everything with integrity. His determination has granted him the opportunity to work in several different capacities at his alma mater, Florida State College at Jacksonville, where he currently does voice-over and commercial work. He has also done commercial work for Red Bull, Meez.com, and Apple Computers. Uncle Nard continues to prove that walking to the beat of one’s own drum can result in exponential opportunities and experiences.
