Influences: There are too many to list, however, the influences that get the credit/blame for propelling me into learning guitar and songwriting are Jackson Browne, Gordon Lightfoot, James Taylor, The Eagles, Emmylou Harris. I also listened to a lot of British rock, blues, and jazz. I discovered Bruce Cockburn in the late nineties and his music really impacted me. Most recently I've been getting reacquainted with Tom Waits, Leonard Cohen, Elvis Costello and R.E.M. I've also been listening to Courtney Barnett, Kurt Vile, and Jake Bugg quite a bit
I'm a native of the Cincinnati area. I've always loved and listened to an eclectic mix of music. Started playing guitar when I was in junior high school - used to play and sing with my older sisters. Started writing in High school. Was on again off again with playing and writing over the next 20 years. Play and write pretty steadily now.
Shall I add you as a collaborator on You're Pretty? That way you can just add your demo the way you do with your own songs.
Thank you for listening to my songs and leaving such kind comments about them.
Thank you so incredibly much for your warm and kind comments. And I'd definitely like you to collaborate on 'You're Pretty'. As a father, you totally understand what the lyrics are about, so please give it a go!
