Moses

Witness, Story teller, Musician

Born and raised in Forrest City (Arkansas), he was musically inclined from an early age. He learned how to play piano, flute and guitar.

In 1972, he moved to San Francisco, where he worked as a house painter and played with several bands in the Bay Area.

His music was recorded by Pete Miller, a legendary British guitarist that toured with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, and who later opened a recording studio in San Francisco. Moses’ life imploded in the early 80’s, and he ended up enduring a rough life on the streets of San Francisco for two decades. In 2007, he starred in a student film that launched him on a ten-year journey to reclaim his life, his family, and his music.
