My songs are a result of my own introspective journey; and yet, like every songwriter, I hope they reflect something universal. I love many styles of music, but my faves are: roots, blues, folk-rock, country-rock, jazz, R&B, and world-beat. Here are a few of my musical influences: Neil Young, Daniel Lanois, Tom Waits, JJ Cale, T-Bone Burnett, Gram Parsons, Nick Drake, John Lennon, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Peter Gabriel, Beatles, CSNY…and many more.
I'd like to thank my co-producer, engineer, and multi-instrumentalist, Adam Popowitz who helped translate the sound and feel that was inside of me into my debut CD: grokkin' the river. I would also like to acknowledge the other musicians on the CD who helped 'create' the sonic landscape I was hearing in my head: Melissa Mansfield, background vocals; Elliot Polsky, drums, percussion; Timothy Tweedale, pedal steel; Keith Lowe, upright bass
