Description

Karlis on CD

Born in Little Rock, Arkansas Karlis has always loved the art of music. At a young age he heard the soulful voices of such artists as Walter Hawkins, Rance Allen, Leon Patillo, Donny Hathaway, Roberta Flack, The Clark Sisters and Al Jarreau. Karlis would often imitate these famous singers with a passion. He dreamed he would be as successful as those he listened to. Karlis moved from Little Rock to Riverside, California. At that time he formed a singing group called 4 Da Blaque. They began writing their own songs with an eagerness to show people what they could do. They performed cover tunes at several high schools events, local talent shows and the local college functions (CSU, San Bernardino; S. B. Valley College). While in college Karlis and his brother \'Lex Luther" formed a rapp group. They dubbed their group The Waxin' Unit and later The Wise Guys. They made their own beats and recorded their own tracks. Karlis also started playing the piano during this time. He often experimented for hours in the practice rooms of the University (CSU, San Bernardino). Eager to bring his creations to life he formed his first band then. It was literally a coincidence the way they got together. The group was then obviously named Coincidence. They worked around the campus of the university performing originals written by Karlis. Karlis hooked up with The GRK Project. Gary Henderson, the director of the project, encouraged Karlis to bring his keyboard to practice. Gary taught Karlis chord structures and progressions along with some helpful theory. With a new found confidence Karlis began gigging with the group and since then has never looked back. The group has performed all over the IE frequenting sassy spots like Mario's Place in Riverside, CA. The GRK Project was eventually redubbed Seven Ave. They have shared the stage with such artists as Tierra, Lakeside, Cameo, G.Q, Jon Bon Jovi, Diana Ross, James Ingram, Jermaine Jackson and more. Now it is time for Karlis to live the dream he has had for a long time now. It is time to ride.
