Influences

Christy Moore, The Animals, Ella Fitzgerald, Gene Pitney, Dolly Parton, Sade and more. Sang back up for classic rock band "Crying Backwards" for one year, then did a variety of stuff with "4 Ever Erin," singing lead for the 13 years we existed - 2002-2015. Open-minded about genres and learning other peoples' stuff.
Took one year of 'theory' at Cecil College a while back, and a 'Fundamentals' course years before that. Came away understanding that a song's key is usually determined by its last note and not its first. Beyond that, I usually sound songs out on my flute to figure it all out, and do just as well being told what note a song starts on.
Have written a few songs of my own.

I can't claim to know all of any band's work or the names/biographies of band members, but I love 'world' music and other unique sounds. My fantasy band-name would be "Hengest Dupree and his zydeco bagpipes," just because people would not be able to decide how we were supposed to sound before hearing us. Most bizarre compliment received: "You guys are really weird, but in a GOOD way!"

I am more flexible than the platform here permits one to indicate. Right now, I figure I'll get a flexible day job and work music and other things around it, but life changes, so...
