Growing up with a musical family background, I started playing guitar when I was about 7 years old. Early on I was exposed to mostly Country and Folk music. Soon after, I formed my first rock band and started playing what we now call "Classic Rock". Most of my guitar heroes back then were Blues influenced, so I guess that's when I first started picking up on the Blues. Today, Blues is a big part of what I do, whether it's Rock, Country, or anything in between, it's always going to have a Bluesy Feel to it.
