Born and raised in the heart of New York City, Hiram came from a close-knit, musical Christian family. His father was a Pastor and played the Trombone in church. At a very young and tender age, Hiram soon found and developed musical expression through piano, guitar, organ and drums, all of which he learned by ear. He studied voice and played the trumpet since elementary school into College and afterwards. After a conversion experience at 15 years old, he went on to study music at The Kings College in Briarcliff Manor NY, Westchester Community College in Valhalla NY and studied voice with Gale Nelson-Holgate, accomplished vocal instructor and performer, from New York City.
For over 30 years, Hiram's Christian musical career has led him through many paths which have included arranging, performing, song writing. He is also is a multi-instrumentalist, which has helped him in composing. He has been involved with local communities, countless ministries, musicians, singers and churches which has included touring the Eastern United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Europe and invitations to Africa.

Hiram has led Worship and Directed Choirs in many churches and venues. He has also worked effectively within the studio, recording and writing for other artists, as well as work on his own independent projects. His single, 'When I Pray,' plays on Christian radio stations along with songs from a piano project called 'Up State', which was inspired from experiences within a 2 year period in his life. An accomplished songwriter and recording artist, Hiram is called to lead and teach praise and worship to fellow believers everywhere.
The path to the throne room is a familiar one for Hiram, who is sensitive to the ebb and flow of the Spirit. He makes others comfortable with entering into the Lord’s presence and are then drawn into a place of deeper intimacy with the Lord.
