Bio

Connection. At the root of good music is a connection. Spiritual music, which I grew up heavily with, connects a soul to God. Blues, country, folk, rock, etc., these sounds have the potential to connect the hearts of the listeners to new ideas, distant places, and even intimate encounters. To make that connection I believe the performer has to play and sing from deep inside his spirit.

Soul. I'm a soulful singer. I bend notes and moan over lyrics as I sing. I labor to put all of my feelings into every word or sound. I want to project a sense of warmth in singing that engages the listener and actually invites them to participate in singing or dancing.

Modern Sounds. My band enjoys the feeling of a good groove. We mix elements of blues, gospel, rock and country into a uplifting expression of music. The listener's ear feels comfortable with familiar sounds and at the same time, is challenged to explore and visit new places-- a mixture of old and new.

Rock and Roll. I've been influenced by many great singers and many great songs over the years. I love the Beatles, Johnny Cash, Jim Croce, Ray Charles, Willie Nelson and other legendary performers. I'm also really into U2, Ray Lamontagne, Narls Barkley, Nora Jones, Ryan Adams, DMB and John Mayer.

Innovation. I want to push the envelope. I am always looking for the next great song or sound. In any given concert our band stretches musically to engage invention and explore the limits of our own creativity. What can I say? We like to jam.
