Influences

You name it! I enjoy MOST all types of music & genre. I have played with groups including Southern Gospel productions, classic country productions such as "Always....Patsy Cline", country-rock venues, along with gospel bluegrass to Contemporary Christian music on our worship team at church. I also enjoy alternative stuff heard on Cities97.
My dear Uncle Vern (97yoa) is responsible for me playing steel guitar during family get together's. He plays a Gibson Console Grande and Fry-Pan.
