I don't know him personally but his pops is a good friend of mine and I've met him a few times. Frankly I'm embarrassed that it took me this long to really give the kid a real listen and good god... he's a beast. 100% official. He's only 20-21 and he's been Robin Thicke's guitarist for a few years already.
Anyhow.... check him out. Watch his youtube videos. Read his interviews online. He's incredible.
