"Their music hits on so many levels and, because of that, can reach so many. They did not limit their influence to any one particular genre - pulling in elements of blues, jazz, soul, funk, country... and they revolutionized what music sounded like. I hate to sound cliché in any way, but their music is really timeless... at least to me, anyway. People who are truly seeking genuine inspiration and creativity in music that stirs that place deep within us all,…Continue

"Blues and Soul is music of hope, originated by a people, who had to survive on hope. The feeling of despair and repair are still felt today. Memphis struggles with poverty and maybe is one of the most impoverished cities in America. I just want to help people feel better and performing songs about familiar troubles might make a person feel less lonely."

"I truly believe that music, generally, brings people of all colors and backgrounds together. That’s power. And, that’s love. The human spirit is an amazing thing to witness. The Blues genre is no pariah, yet the Blues community is small: is represented by a small community of devoted listeners, avid followers and creative genius. Notably, we’ve seen artists from all backgrounds become great creators of blues music, and that speaks volumes for it is the art…Continue

"At this point in history, just getting even your friends to listen to your music, even if you put it right in front of them on their computer screen for free, is a major challenge. I make music for me and my collaborators. I’m making a concentrated effort recently to assemble my music and get it to anyone interested, free. I was always my worst critic, so I try to impress myself, first."
