Influences

For new music, I like Spoon, The Shins, Beck (his acoustic stuff mostly, but its all good) and music in that vein. I like American roots music - Doc Watson, Brownie McGhee come to mind. I like jazz from the late 50's era, Coltrane, Monk, MJQ, etc. Some bands from the 80's still sound good to me: Prefab Sprout, REM, The Smiths, more I can't remember.

I could listen to the Basement Tapes with Dylan and The Band till they bury me. For other 70's era stuff, lately I've been listening to Gram Parsons, Rolling Stones, Grateful Dead (77 and 78 especially).

EQUIPMENT

78 Takamine Acoustic - (D28 knock off - sounds great) with Fishman pick up.

Genz Benz Shenendoah Jr. Acoustic Amp/PA.

1981 Ibanez AR100

Peavy Classic 50 Combo Amp.

Mics, stands, mixing console.

I'm ready to make noise.
