Influences

Wow, too many to list. I grew up in a Latin household with my dad as a bandleader. You can say I have strong Latin music roots. It has influenced the way I play. Being an eighty's kid, I obviously was influenced by a myriad of singers and bands, from Michael Jackson to Level42. As for other music, I grew up on a huge Jazz fan! Everything from fusion, latin, electric, big band, and smooth jazz. Love rock too! Some of my favorite all time bands: The Police, Journey, Level42, Chick Corea Electric Band, The Yellowjackets, Led Zeppelin, EWF, John Mayer Trio, Koinonia, Steely Dan. I know I'm leaving a lot out, but the list can go on.
