What is your favorite part about your job?
It’s probably easier to ask me what my LEAST favorite part is because I basically love it all. I love the music, I love the singing, I love the creativity, the camaraderie, the atmosphere, the crowd, the night life, being part of something bigger, the sense of community, enjoying the moment. I do not enjoy the setup and breakdown of equipment every night.
What makes you unique, what do you do to stand out from other local musicians in the area?
Tough question but I guess I would say that I try to be genuine, heartfelt, and diverse. I love solo acoustic arrangements of songs, no gimmicks, just guitar and vocals.
Who are your mentors? Who has influenced your career the most?
I started playing the guitar because of Eric Clapton, but singer/songwriters have always been my biggest influences, such as Jackson Browne, Simon & Garfunkel, James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen, John Mayer, and Chris Cornell.
