I'm a reluctant New Englander. I was born in El Paso, TX, and came to NH in the early 1970s. Now, I can't imagine living anywhere else but here. I learned the power of a song when my older brother locked me in a closet and made me listen to Black Sabbath's "Paranoid" over and over again. My favorite records are Tom Waits' "Closing Time," and Marc Cohn's eponymous debut record. I could sit in a good music store for hours, picking on acoustic guitars. Strings and Things Music in Concord, NH is a good one, and they're good people. I played my first gig in Concord, too... at Hermanos Cocina Mexicana. It's still there, and so am I... I recently played their 30th anniversary. I call my music FreeStyle Folk, and though I often play solo, or with my trusty JamMan looper, I like nothing better than sharing a song with a fellow music lover. When I was starting out a while back, someone said to me: "You can't eat music." Well, no... but it sure does feed your soul. Thanks for listening.
