Being able to play and enjoy music
is a gift that's often taken for granted.

This music is a mixture of my own creations,
along with some collaborations with others.










How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
I see the internet as a catalyst for marketing, promotional opportunities etc. With the advent of digital music transfer, the artists being able to share and spread their music in a way, which they never could before.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
They say that everything is negotiable. Have your people contact my people.
Band History:
I started playing guitar around 1964. After playing in some local bands, I decided to try working with some roadbands and that went on for about 25+ years. Along the road I started noodling on a piano and the rest is history.
Your influences?
I like a wide variety of music. Some of my influences include Mike Bloomfield, Steve Cropper, George Harrison, Jeff Beck, Eddie Hinton, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Nolen, Brent Mason, Tommy Tedesco, Bill Hullett, Willie Nelson, Jimmy Bryant, Hank Garland, Albert Lee, Will Ray, B.B. King, Albert King, Freddie King, Jack Jezzro and John Jorgenson.
Favorite spot?
It changes all the time.
Equipment used:
Anything that makes noise :)
Anything else...?
Life can be very short, make every day count.

So sweet and poignant. It makes me think of simple God fearing honest people just living their lives. Sounds crazy but it makes think of the horrors committed by my people in the war of Independence ~ although I wasn't around then, I wasn't born until 1790 smile :) Maybe it's bringing back to me an article I read in the Boston Globe about British atrocities.

Ah yes! Well that hits the right spot with me on a very misty February morning here in the Staffordshire UK hills. Especially like it when the percussion kicks in - great effect. Your "Americana" piece also follows this beautifully in the playlist by the way.

Woah!...Nice deep bass, and a cookin' rhythm track. The sax slides around like a slippery snake. Love the horn section too. Like, what's not to like here. What a fabulously neat production. You should be very proud of this...I'm sure that you are!. Great stuff guys.

This really has that smokey late night live stage appeal it it! A great sounding jam from both of you! Really enjoyed the funky guitar and the cool saxophone. The rhythm section has some nice instrumentation as well. Love the hammond chops and the soulful vocal spots! Nice variety in the collaboration.

Great funky fun here smile :) Great to hear something with such a "Live" felling here on SC. It really sounds like great musicians jamming along to a backtrack ( I guess that is what it is?). The guitars and the saxes are top class!
I love how you take your time and let the beat flow smile :) Cool stuff!
