Do you play live?
I play weekly every Sunday at a local eatery called Potbellys. I can't get enough of playing for people.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Works great for us starting out. Most musicians want to be heard and mp3 can open the door.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
My music fits better with a small label.
I?ve grown up in what I consider the prolific music era. The sixties and seventies had so many artists that weren?t just making music but changing the world as well. My father played guitar and sang for the family. Being a railroad worker he played folk music with an edge. So these two things really influenced my being involved in music and desire to create my own music and play music of those artists who really said something to me in their lyrics.
Neil Young, John Prine, Steve Earle, Jayhawks, Greg Brown, Wilco, Lucinda Williams, Ryan Adams, Whiskytown, Kathleen Edwards, Emmylou Harris. Great Lakes Swimmers, The list goes on.
Ovation guitar, Ibanez 12 string, Gretsch 6 string acoustic, Seagull 6 string acoustic, Hohner Marine band harmonicas, keyboard, Austin Mandolin, Cordoba ukulele
