Biography

I was born in Anchorage, Alaska, and grew up in Miami, Florida, until my family and I headed up north to a small town near Tupelo, Mississippi where my parents were born and raised, called Pontotoc. By the age of sixteen we moved to Memphis, Tennessee.

My father could play anything with strings, a genuine guitar picker. He was my family’s musical inspiration and the one to get us in all the shows we played in from the time I was five. He has performed with the likes of Hank Williams Sr., Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, and Ace Cannon to name a few. Marty Robbins used our name, and we loved playing his music. He called me Rock n’ Roll, and he loved it. We did a show on stage, a duet where he sang the old time version of “T for Texas” and I sang the Lynard Skynard version.

My sister, Judy Rodman, was the first to have success by using his teachings. She won many awards including 1985 Academy of Country Music’s "New Female Vocalist of The Year.” She had several hits beginning with her 1 hit “Until I Met You” and more recently she wrote LeAnn Rimes’ 1 “One Way Ticket (Because I Can)”.

I began writing my own music in the late 90’s. Judy and I co-wrote “Crack In My Armor,” which in Spring of 1997 was named song of the month by Music Row Weekly Magazine. It was the title cut on three different artists’ albums, Grammy Award winner Randy Khors being one. Many thanks to my sister Judy Rodman for helping me amplify my range to 4 and a half octaves through her vocal training technique called "Power, Path, and Performance." She taught me well, not only am I a singer, I am also an entertainer.
My influences were The Birds, Lynard Skynard, Led Zeplin, Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, and Ray Charles.
