"I am hopeful for the future of the genre. I think those purists are just a loud minority, and I feel like a lot of newer artists are driving a bit of a resurgence in the genre's popularity. Buddy Guy recently said that he felt the wider music industry treated the Blues "like a stepchild," and I hope we'll started to see a shift in those attitudes before much longer."

"Music is the most powerful tool for social revolution and building a society. I can only hope my music will leave a lasting impression on others. My goal is to make music from the heart. This sounds cliche but these days there is so much temptation to conform your music to fit into a certain mold to "sell". I will know I have accomplished something if I inspire others to create, play guitar, or build something beautiful."…Continue

"I think that music don't have so much influence as before. Just remember Bob Marley, John Lennon and many others whose music moved people, public opinion, politicians... Today's mainstream music is like fast food, don't last long."

"American roots music is so steeped in the rich and complicated history of the United States. Listening to this music and trying to understand how it relates to the times in which it was written or performed offers so much insight into the history and people of the US. It’s the sound track to a lot of movies and is woven into our lives."

"I think music is a universal language. Like mathematics, it’s a universal method for humans to communicate across language, religion, and cultural barriers. Music is a common denominator and Blues/Rock music has influenced my views on the world, and I hope the music we create does so for others."

"I think of music as being a reflection of all factions of culture. Once in a while, music transcends all that, as in the case of WE ARE THE WORLD, etc! It has been proven that music can be a tremendous force for good."

"I understand that “The Spirit” is the God-breathed identity that all of us have been uniquely given. Music can be one of the expressions that we use to communicate how we have been affected by The Spirit. The meaning of life is knowing and experiencing the Love that God has for us all and sharing that love with all that we meet."

"Well, blues along with jazz was invented by African Americans, so in a way, it has done good things for black people in the US. This music brings whites and blacks together. That was especially important in the 1950’s and 60’s here. But now blues inhabits a very small community and has little social implications."

"So for me blues music and the people I've met in it make myself keep a sense of humility first off. Because at the end of the day, we're all people. Don't matter what race, creed color your are. We're human, we're people. So it teaches me to stay humble, grateful and I try to stay kind."
