From there he continued to master his craft, working in the studio and going on tour with the likes of Yolanda Adams, Stanley Brown, P. Diddy, Boyz II Men, Bruce Springsteen, and the Roots.

As a bandleader he released the albums Christmas with You, Leave You Alone, and Gotcha Now Doc in 2010, 2011, and 2012 respectively.
