The passion that I have for the blues runs deep. This is not just a hobby or job for me. Music is deep in my bones, and expression through simple 12 bar blues patterns under a calculated lead guitar is how I convey my soul to the audience. My influences include Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Healey, Billy Gibbons, George Thorogood, B.B. King, Albert King, Louis Jordan, Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, John Lee Hooker, Jimi Page, Slash, The Blues Brothers, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Johnny Lang, Joe Bonamassa, Eric Clapton, and too many more to continue.
