By the time he completely lost his eyesight, Buster learned how to play 6 Instruments, including the Guitar which he consistently played, while attending the North Carolina School for the Blind.

As a Teenager Buster relocated to Long Island, New York. In 1959 Buster began his Professional Musical Career as a back-up Guitar Player in Alan Freed's 'ROCK AND ROLL SHOWS', the premier Showcase for many future World Class Entertainers, that was at Brooklyn's Paramount Theater. In addition Buster was performing on a regular basis in the Bars and Clubs on Long Island.

In 1964 Buster won a Talent Contest at the World famous 'APOLLO THEATER', and caught the attention of Jerry Blaine, who ran the Jubilee and Josie Record Company. Buster signed with Jubilee/Josie records, and recorded his Composition 'LOOKING FOR A HOME', which became a Radio Hit in the local markets on the East Coast. Throughout the 1960's Buster recorded for Jubilee/Jossie Records, his biggest Hit was in 1968. The name of the song was 'YOUNG BOY BLUES' which was written by Legendary Song Writer Doc Pomus. Doc Pomus said that "Buster's Overwhelming Version Of This Song Was The Best Rendition That He Ever Heard", far outstripping Ben E. King's cover of the Song. The last Single that Buster recorded for Jubilee/Josie Records was 'CITY OF BLUES/CRY ME A RIVER' Jubilee/Josie Records recorded Buster's first Album, compiled of previously released 45's and some additional original Compositions in 1970. The title of the Album was 'LOOKING FOR A HOME', but unfortunately due to the financial demise of Jubilee/Josie Records this album was never released, and was put in storage in the Company Vault.

In the 1970 Buster put his Recording Career on hold and concentrated on Live Performances throughout New York. Buster paid his dues as an opening Act. These Shows featuring his unbelievable Vocals and Guitar playing, resulted in his Legendary Entertainer status in New York that still remains today.

This CD compiled mostly of Buster's original Compositions received Worldwide acclaim, and resulted in a W.C.HANDY AWARD, Nomination, and received runner-up status for the LIVING BLUES MAGAZINE CRITICS AWARD. Buster's Recording Career moved forward in 2000, with the release of another CD, 'WORK YOUR SHOW' on Fedora Records. This CD also received rave reviews by the Music Critics throughout the World. These accolades created the opportunity for Buster to perform on 'CBS This Morning', 'Late Night With Connan O'Brien','The David Letterman Show', 'The Chris Rock Show', and 'Dan Ackroyd's House Of Blues Hour'. Buster has also been featured in Periodicals such as 'Juke Blues Magazine' and ' 20th Century Guitar'. This increased exposure created the opportunity for Buster to Perform in Concerts and Music Festivals in the United States, Canada, Europe and Japan.

One of the many goals of this collaboration was to enable Buster to have complete control of his own Record Company, and his Music.
