ABOUT

I play guitar with a part-time 3-piece blues-rock group now but I'm always interested in expanding my musical contacts. My style/background has a strong blues influence. I like to rock out on the blues but also enjoy kicking back with some front porch pickin'. The stuff I write ranges from blues-rock to classic R&B style (love to get a little funky), or maybe "adult contemporary," and of course everybody loves a good country song.
I put in my time on the road back in the day, and I'm reasonably proficient on guitar (lead, rhythm, slide, finger-pick, etc.). In my blues-rock group I handle most of the vocals.
I'll have a drink now and then, but I'm a light drinker and I prefer working with people of similar habits.

Influences

Songwriting influences are subtle, but a few that come to mind are: the Motown and classic R&B writers, JJ Cale, JL Hooker, Jimmy Reed, Lowell George, ZZ Top (don't laugh), Paul Simon, Buddy Holly, Bob Dylan (good luck), a lot of classic rock writers that no one knows. If you've ever heard of Tom Lehrer, I think he influenced me as a child.
Musical/Guitar Influences would include: Bernard Allison, Duane Allman, Taj Mahal, JL Hooker, Santana, Albert King, Elmore James, Lowell George, Johnny Winter, ZZ Top, all that great 60s & 70s R&B (Wilson Pickett, James Brown, Solomon Burke, et al.), Danny Gatton and can't forget Mel Bay!

EQUIPMENT
