Grew up in Chicago, lived in California, Oregon and New Mexico before moving back, this time to Central Illinois. I now live next to a beautiful forest that is an endless inspiration to me.
Have played music for many years, writing songs for the past 10.
Influences range from folk to blues to medieval to jazz to rock. The Beatles, Joni Mitchell, Bonnie Raitt, BB King, Koko Taylor, John Prine, Ella Fitzgerald, Paul Simon, Etta James...too many to list. Someday I'd love to sing with a blues band...
Just me on mountain dulcimer, tenor recorder, vocals, keyboard, autoharp. Recorded at home using Acid software. Now and then I play out with family or friends, but these recordings are bare bones at home.
Have had some airplay on independent stations; no LP's yet.
