Why this name?
I didn't have much choice; it's a birth thing.
Do you play live?
I gig in Florida, formerly with Native Tongue.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
The internet levels the playing field for the independent musician, and makes economical, global distribution of music a reality.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Band History:
At the tender age of fifteen I hitch-hiked from Detroit to Key West with a guitar and a harmonica and played for tips in "The Bull", a bar that still stands to this day. After 20 years of club and studio work I settled in Orlando and built Bad Bear Studios, a recording and mastering facility catering to independent, original artists. I have new music coming out all the time, so check back soon.
Your influences?
Robben Ford, John Scofield, Keb Mo', Robert Cray, Bruce Hornsby, Delbert McClinton, BB, Freddie and Albert King, Scott Henderson, Larry Carlton, Lee Ritenour, Bill Evans, McCoy Tyner, Ry Cooder, Robbie Robertson, Santana, Tower of Power, Little Feat
Favorite spot?
On my sailboat with a guitar, or in my studio.
Equipment used:
I play all the instruments except horns. I record Sequoia 8.2, and Sonar Producer Edition 5.2.
Anything else...?
My raccoon Simon says hi to everyone.
He's learning how to wrap up cables. He already knows how to unwrap them.
