Influences

I pull from a lot of places. Got my start with Rock and Progressive Rock. But I realize a good melody and line trumps all...

Rock/Progressive: Rush, Yes, King Crimson, Marillion, Kate Bush, the Fixx, Led Zeppelin, Porcupine Tree, Karnivool, Red Hot Chili Peppers, etc... The Beatles were my first love musically.
Drumming - many years playing jazz. Influenced by drummers from this genre and by: Coltrane, Miles Davis, Art Blakey, Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea.
Michael Hedges for his soundscaping
