"The only interesting thing is what makes one person different from the other. It is important to know who you are in life, your values, your approach to every day, your purpose in life, etc. Only then can you be creative and express something creatively valuable."

"I miss the old legends that came before me. It’s really the reason why I chose to crossover to the sound I have on my album, because the sound is not the same. Music today is totally different from the music back then, but I love both."

"I don't know how people get through life without music. I mean: playing music. I think it would be a finer, better, happier place...this Earth...if every home had an acoustic piano in it. If it were the law."

"I think music will always be the true universal language. It crosses borders freely; its rhythms and melodies can be found in nature if you listen. The impact of music is enormous; it brings people together, it calms, it’s an escape, it heals, it enlightens, it makes people happy. All you have to do is listen."

"I think blues brings people of all backgrounds together as everyone can relate and honestly, I believe that it's a very open accepting genre. I've seen where other traditionally rooted African-American music has remained in the black community where as in blues it's become a wonderful blend of all people."

"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."

"Artists are people who seek to discover some way of expressing something within themselves that usually remains hidden, and if they are able to tap into that something, other people recognize it within themselves too and respond to it. It may not just be people we think of as artists who are able to do that. A great athlete, a talented teacher, a great doctor does the same thing."

"I have an idea that music is a way of collectively experiencing time. It is a subjective passage of time, but the structure of the music allows us to experience time together. Subdivisions, strong beats, weak beats, melody - they’re all a guide to telling us where we are inside a unit of time, which is a song, or a piece of music. Obviously, music is much more than that. It has its emotional journey, but the thing that hooks us is the sense of being within…Continue

"As far as race is concerned, young blacks will never go back to blues because they were raised differently, in cities mostly, it will never be country blues like it was. American blacks will be the lowest percentage of people into the blues. Young blacks ain't interested and some older blacks don't want to be reminded."

"The Blues express clarity, honesty, and simplicity. It’s been my experience that white folks also have the blues. They seem to support my music because they understand the hardship we have experienced. The black folks don’t want to be reminded about trials and tribulations of the past. The young people want to partake in the finer things in life and move on with their materialistic voyage."

"New Orleans music has the deepest roots of all American music. The grooves there are derived from generations passed, sometimes refined, sometimes raw, always grooving. It’s the origin of so much modern music, from rock-n-roll to blues to jazz, and often all mashed together in the same song. There is a looseness, freedom, uninhibited vibe to the whole city, and it shows in the music."
