Where are you from and how does that influence you...

Being originally from the Motor City, early in life I was heavily influenced by the no-nonsense blue collar attitude of the hard working people of Detroit. Yes, it’s gotten a bad rap over the years but if you’re from here and have lived here you know what a jewel it is and can be once again. Overall, they are a very proud and hard working group of folks, and I have tried to live my life to that beat. Musically, of course the rhythms and grooves of the Motown recordings mixed with the rock influences I believe can be heard in my music. Very early when I fell in love with Country Music and later became blessed with the opportunity with this career, it seemed like the perfect marriage.
