I was born in Front Royal, Virginia and raised just south of Atlanta, Georgia. Music moved me to dance and sing at a very young age--I am indeed the family ham!

I wrote and recorded my first official album in 2004 called "I Am", which enabled me to tour the country opening for bands such as: Maroon5, Dave Mathews Band, Hanson, Blues Traveler, OAR, Gavin Degraw and many others. My music has been featured in several TV shows and movies --> "Scrubs", "One Tree Hill", "Sopranos", "Life As We Know It" among others. I had the privilege of writing music for HBO and several Hilton commercial campaigns including the 2008 Olympics, where they used my song "Speed Feels Better".

I learned piano around age 10 and guitar around 18 --- I wrote songs every several years when falling for a girl prevented me from sleeping. My favorite form of writing is in the moment... many call freestyling-- it's a mind bending rollercoaster that ignites my mind, body, and spirit....and seems to do the same for the audience 🙂

I released my new album, "Eleven" May 4th 2015 --> eleven years to the day since "I Am". I wrote and produced this one ... quite an epic undertaking and learning experience. I'm excited to be touring again and continuing my journey with one mission- to ignite the human spirit in myself and others thru music.

Mutlu
Mutlu is a Philadelphia­based singer­songwriter. Mutlu has already built a substantial fan base in his hometown, while winning widespread praise for his prior releases. He's collaborated and toured extensively as a support act with legendary duo Daryl Hall & John Oates and holds the distinction of having made the most guest appearances on Daryl Hall's acclaimed, award­winning TV/Internet show "Live From Daryl's House". He's also gained considerable attention for his work with noted singer­songwriter Amos Lee, with whom he's toured extensively as a support act and backup vocalist. He was the support act on the North American leg of Joe Jackson's acclaimed "Rain" tour.
Born Mutlu Onaral, he grew up steeped in Philadelphia's deep R&B traditions, eagerly absorbing the fundamentals of old­school soul music and incorporating it into his own musical persona. His local success led to a recording deal with Manhattan/EMI Records, which released his acclaimed 2008 debut album Livin' It, produced by the late, great T­Bone Wolk, and featuring guest appearances by Daryl Hall, Amos Lee, G. Love and Raheem DeVaughn. His latest release is the Caffeine & Whiskey EP which he co­produced with songwriter/producer Darius Amendolia.
