My earliest musical influences included country artists, such as Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Hank Snow, and Ernest Tubb. I first started playing guitar in the early '70s. Throughout the ‘70s I played in rock and roll cover bands, while listening to all types of music including country, rock, blues, jazz, and R&B. Some of my favorite artists include Frank Zappa, Willie Nelson, Nora Jones, Levon Helm, Yes, B.B. King, and Muddy Waters. For the past 15 years, I've performed classic rock, blues, and contemporary Christian music with multiple groups. Most recently, I've begun recording and mixing music for myself and others.
