When Shoplift’s father, a former member of the “Four Tops”, suddenly passed in Shoplift’s arms years ago, becoming one of the many devastating experiences impacted Shoplift, but the ultimate loss in life, left him in a dark place. Being an inspiration to his music, his father had always encouraged him to not quit.

I realized something needed to change just didn’t know how to go about making the change happen.”
