Authentic is the first word that comes to mind when I consider how to describe myself as a musician. I embrace a great deal of pride in the identity and the history behind folk music and the blues. I am greatly influenced by the musical legacy of Bob Dylan -this being in harmonica phrasing and the lyrical landscaping of a song. A song can bring back a dormant memory from over 20 years ago, so its my philosophy that the words should mean something.

Acoustic blues continues to have a profound effect upon the styles of fingerpicking I emulate on the guitar which varies from the driving power of Robert Johnson, to the subtleness of Mississippi John Hurt, to the well-articulated melodies of the Rev Gary Davis.

After graduating from the Univ of Oklahoma with a BA in history (Dec 2007) I started pursuing music professionally. My musical career has not been a long one though it is one has demonstrated tremendous potential and advancement in a short period of time. I am a man of serious drive- something that comes in useful when engaged in a career that resembles cat herding. I have my heart in this and I have only begun to stretch my legs-Justin Witte
