ABOUT

Im a Blues man from the Northwest down here playing and singing in the land where it all started, with Robert Johnson and the Devil at the crossroads. People say the blues are dying but i think were right where we want to be. So much more soul and passion goes into the blues that people don't feel so I'm taking songs, where the Blues started and bringing them back with my own funk on it (pun intended) but still have that original feel to it.
