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 :)

THis is quite the masters piece of artistic beautiful on display........love the piano through out.......THis feels Irish in that I'm expressing the sound of green beer on tap and lovely swing dancing in an Irish PUb that was more jazz oriented than anything and had a flair of ambiental new age rather than the occasional jig...THis is beautiful....~Katherine

Lovely mellow tones and a very engaging carefree, uplifting vibe. It's got that "Spring is here, Summer's on the way" kind of feel. Excellent production.

I like the bright and breezy vibe to this song, you've definitely captured that lift that we all feel when Spring arrives, the weather improves and everything is in bloom. First class production, arrangement and performance.

This song makes you happy and joyful that spring is here. Standout for me is the acoustic guitar treatment/mix. Perfect production. Enjoyable Mike.

A feel-good ditty for certain. That acoustic guitar is played admirably consistent in tone and rhythm.

Has Spring really sprung? After this dreadful winter I hope so. Well this got me into the "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" feeling about Spring - "Oh, the barnyard is busy in a regular tizzy; and the obvious reason is because of the season. Ma Nature's lyrical, with her yearly miracle
