What started your interest in music?
Initially it was my mom. She was a singer and dancer when she was younger and it filtered down to me .
Steve Winwood by far was the artist I liked working with the most. He has always been one of my idols and his approach to shows is something that has stayed with me for over 30 years.
I STILL feel it's one of the purest forms of music there is, IF you write your story OR write your observation of a story. I believe that's what keeps the genre alive, having people feel the hurt and happiness that you convey from your own experiences.
Do you have a favorite guitar and gear?
Yes I am a Delaney Guitar endorser and I even have my own signature model. Kije Delaney is based in Bastrop Texas and his guitars are second to none...I also Love and endorse Seagull/Godin acoustic guitars...spectacular and I have used Marshall amplifiers for 50 years. I also LOVE T-Rex effects.

I miss the old days...reading liner notes, seeing the artwork and this is a perfect way to recreate that special piece of art and music.
