I heard samples of Harold's funky music on CD Baby. I was drawn to listen to the song 'Tuskegee' since I've taken part in Homecoming celebrations at the famous Alabama University. But I loved the concept. The funk moved me. And I love his style of instrumentals. He has a grown vibe and classic voice. The song reminded me of the great legacy of the 'Tuskegee Airman.' So Harold is a conscious artist who knows history and integrity. Tuskegee is a proud school and many of its students possess profoundly unique qualities. So it was great to make a song out of the school and town as well. What a tune of quirkiness.
