Influences

Nearly everything out there; a lot of harmony (Beatles, Queen, ABBA, Eagles, Dan Fogelberg), progressive (Alan Parsons, Pink Floyd, Kansas, Deep Purple) real life storytelling (Jim Croce, Beth Nielsen Chapman, Tom Russell, Dar Williams, Jackson Browne, Nanci Griffith, Iris DeMent) Detroit-based Rock (Bob Seger, Ted Nugent, Rockets) and all the Radio Nectar of my youth (Led Zeppelin, Rainbow, KISS, Foreigner, Boston, Cars, Elton John, Uriah Heep, Heart, The Who, Alice Cooper, Journey, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Styx & Stones) among many others, old and new (the synth work yet organic songs of Yaz/Yazoo). A lot of old Motown and new R&B/Urban/Latin music (Maná, Stevie Wonder, Laura Pausini, Supremes, Julieta Venegas, Temptations, Los Enanitos Verdes), as well. And yes, Ritchie Blackmore gets a double-mention, if you noticed, but let's not discount the works of Tommy Bolin either.
