I wanted to make a contemporary album, but one that shows my roots in American and English music of the Sixties and Seventies. My favorites players over the years have been Clapton, Beck, Steven Stills, Cornell Dupree, Buzz Feiten, and Robben Ford. My singing influences have been people like Tim Harden and John Hiatt. I had help from some great musicians in making this album- Shawn Pelton, Rich Mercurio, Bette Sussman, Lincoln Schleifer, and Paul Socolow to name a few. It's my first release, and it was a long time coming. Enjoy!
