Born Curtis Clark Jr., he is the son of a preacher man, trained and bred in the church of Holiness. Homemadesoul lived a sheltered lifestyle, away from the many perils of this world. While friends played in the street well after dark, Homemadesoul and his two siblings played and sang in the house, under the watch of their loving parents. His mother started him in music at a very early age, making him and his brother and sister sing on the church program as a group called "The Clark Children" While completing his six year enlistment in the Air Force, Homemadesoul honed his skills and worked hard to perfect his craft of writing and producing.
