Influences

My styles and influences range from the less accessible art music to the more popular modern rock and pop. Songs in my current repertoire range from 1950’s (Elvis, Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson), to the British Invasion/ Classic Rock from the 60’s and 70’s (Beatles, Stones, Cream, Zeppelin), to the New Wave Pop and Big Hair Rock styling of the 80’s
( John Cougar, Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, The Cure and The Church) and finally the Grunge of the 90’s (STP, Pearl Jam, Radiohead and Black Crowes) the Modern Pop and Rock of the 2000’s (Jason Mraz, John Mayer, Seether, Nickelback.)
