My dad's old records were a huge influence on me as a kid - The Beatles, CSN, Simon & Garfunkle, all the great stuff. I loved singing along to all of those bands, including Fleetwood Mac, Heart, a lot of Motown and a bunch of 60's and 70's rock and folk music that I still enjoy today. I learned singing harmony simply by listening and mimicking.
I've mostly been a harmony or back up singer, which I still love to do. Lately, I've been singing as a lead singer in a couple of different bands as well as solo. Even though I am no master on the guitar, I can play basic chord structures and keep a good rhythm going while I sing. The guitar is a relatively new instrument for me, so even though I can accompany myself, I keep it simple for now. I hope you enjoy the covers I chose to do. I like to put my own spin on them, for sure!
As for the originals- After a song writing retreat in June of 2012 (Above The Bridge), I finally wrote a couple of songs in August of 2012. Over The Water is about my experience at the song writing retreat. Let It Go, written a year later, is about forbidden love. The Saddest Kind of Blue is my most recent song. Stay tuned for more songs written by me! This past year's songwriting retreat has me totally inspired.
A couple of the tunes (let It Go & Lake Charles) feature my friend Bill Edwards on backing vocals, resonator guitar, mandolin, bass & lead guitar. He recorded us in his home studio, as well. Several of the tunes after the first two feature my friend Chris Davis on bass, mandolin, slide guitar and backing vocals (he recorded us, too). I play acoustic guitar, sing lead and some back up vocals on the songs. The solo recordings were done at home alone with just me and my guitar on a very simple but nice recording gadget called the H2n ZOOM.
Hope you enjoy!
