For Lonny, music is a gift from God that never stops giving.  Lonny intends to continue to share love, truth, and passion through music.  Lonny says, “My music is a combination of my inspirations growing up and the new sounds of music today. I create soulful sounds reminiscent of the 90’s, but with a hip hop heavy drum feel of today. Every one of my songs is a relationship story that reveals truth (the good & bad) in the most beautiful way.”
With much success, awards, promotions, opportunities, and a list of collaborators that reads like a music industry wish list, Lonny is excited about his future in music; and, creating opportunities for others to realize their dreams of living in life in purpose, on purpose. His ultimate goal…. “BE A BLESSING”.
