Have always been a music lover and always will be.
I am a singer, song writer and musician. I have played guitar since I was 12, and wrote my first song at 12.
Have what I guess you could call a unique style of music. Have been told there is no in between with my voice. It is either really loved or really hated. Was that a compliment or insult, lol? Was never sure but will never forget the statement. Think it is true. I have played and love many different types of music, and have a great fondness for soul and blues. Raised in bluegrass harmony. My sound is mix of blues, bluegrass and country. Covers are Sheryl Crow, Allison Krauss, Aretha Franklin, Patty Loveless, Bonnie Rait, Melissa Ethridge.
My beloved 1930's Lg1 Gibson and Martin D15
Music is a passion I have never lost, and I have a great respect for all the wonderful musicians and singers I meet, and most of all, for every single one who has ever listened to one of my songs and enjoyed it. Thanks to you.
