"I miss most the authenticity. The rawness. We try to perfect every little thing in today's music. The subtle mistakes made in yesterday's music were what I call "good mistakes" that the listener most likely doesn't even recognize lol. My fear is that music will become so synthesized that it'll be robotic. That's why I love the blues because it still has it's rawness and authenticity. The live instruments just bring a different feel and future hopes are for…Continue

"Be kind. Be humble and helpful. Music is so powerful and moving. It is a weighty responsibility to me, like a super power of sorts. Music sinks into your soul through your ears, it touches the places that light doesn’t reach, it can heal and bring you company in the lonely corners of life. We are all just people people-ing around, trying to make a better place for the people to people after we are gone, music is my way of doing…Continue

"I hope my music is some mixture of that; I hope at least some of my songs make people want to move, and that some of them cause listeners to have an authentic emotional response. People tell me they cry when listening to some of the songs, and while I’m not happy to think of anybody crying, I have to say it’s rewarding to know that I successfully tapped into the emotional pathway that causes a person to respond on that level."…Continue

"I think the most important thing in life is to be happy. That does not only apply for the life as a musician. I would think this applies to life in general. I think that all “black” music is about to “have a good time”. It doesn’t matter if it is afrobeat, soul, samba, salsa, reggae, funk or blues. Most of them celebrate joy and happiness. I think this is quite different to European music or classical music."…Continue

"Most of the greats are gone, headliners and side people. The level of musicianship is weaker, less inventive. I have no thoughts on the future because of this pandemic. We are living in intense times."

"Music is the way that I relate to the world. I am admittedly quiet and introverted when I am offstage, but for some reason I have no problem getting on a stage in front of thousands of people and sharing my inner most thoughts. I view the live music experience as a time of shared energy and almost group meditation and therapy."

"I miss the authentic sound, blues to me now is too rock-ish. I miss when the guitar wasn’t overpowered with gain or distortion and bands had horns and every man shined on stage in a nice suit and uniformed. I also miss the showmanship, the new players like Toronzo Cannon and Eric Gales have that showman ship cause they move and dance a little when they play."

"Blues is about the human condition, life experience, and sharing stories. I was in college in a computer course when I realized I had to go full tilt into music. I guess you could say the fear of doing anything other than music is what changed the path of my life the most."
