Influences

John Mayall, John Lee Hooker, Sonny Boy Williamson, Charlie Musslewhite, Muddy Waters, Hollin' Wolf, Mickey Raphael, and so many others.

Got hooked on the harp with John Mayall's "Room to Move". Listening to so many Blues artist brought more connection to the music. The crossover from blues to rock was easy with the bands out of the 60's and 70's. Then added folk and country, and a taste of bluegrass.

The Harp for me, brings me closer to the music than playing guitar did and does.
