From Rural Ga.
Grew up listening to my grandmothers old blues 78s.. Blind Boy Fuller, Big Joe Williams and Muddy Waters. As I kid I didn’t know there was any other kind of music. I thought there was only blues or church music.. I remember my grandmother saying “no blues on Sunday it’s the lords day..” So we would only listen to gospel.. Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Mahalia Jackson.
Playing guitar since age 12. Play all types of music, but feel the closest connection to the sound of the old country blues singers. I want to carry the torch for the next generation of blues musicians and keep the old tradition alive.. only really played for enjoyment and at church until a once in a lifetime meeting with Keb Mo at a Christmas party. There was a band setting up to play and he was talking to the guitar player looking at his guitar. I join in the conversation. He turns to me and asked “do you play”? I start picking on the guitar.. Peidmont style and he offers me a gig on the spot… Was one of the guitar players for his Monday night blues show with Keb Mo in 2013. Since then I have been working with Gary Nicholson, Jon Tiven and vocal coaching from Bekka Bramlett. Currently finishing up my solo album…
