“The Ultralove experience is worth visiting and re-visiting; as he hones his craft in front of a live audience his evolution has been swift and obviously ready for the next phase of his career. Do yourself a favor - come down and let him coax out the ultra-lover in you.”

Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania this singer, songwriter, emcee, actor, and vocalist paved his own way onto the Los Angeles music scene. A resident of Venice Beach, he's a meticulous blend of R&B, hip-hop, folk, and funk. He is likely best known for his hip-hop remix of “New York, New York” for the Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis blockbuster, Friends With Benefits as well as his remix of Neil Diamond’s “Holly Holy” for the Kevin James and Selma Hayek comedy, Here Comes the Boom. The former has been featured on NBC’s America’s Got Talent and twice on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars. He has written and performed alongside some of the industry’s top artists: Thirty Seconds to Mars (on The Ellen DeGenerous Show), Talib Kweli, Eddie Griffin, El DeBarge, Ruben Studdard, Yellowman, The Mowglis, and Sleepy Brown. He attributes to his musical growth to the tremendously talented musicians and artists he has collaborated with over the years as well as the producers and engineers who’ve pushed him to continue to innovate and refine his sound. Presently, he is promoting his upcoming debut LP (produced by Travis James) entitled, Seraphim.
“He carries his tall stature with the swagger of a man who’s just laid out the winning cards at a high stakes table. With a background in theatre his delivery adds another dimension to his poetry. In that, you’re not just listening to music, you’re having an experience in the world he’s created.”
