Album Notes
I am influenced by many different kinds of music. Growing up in the sixties I was influenced by the English bands, The Beatles,
The Rolling Stones, and The Kinks.
I also used to listen to many American artists, JJ Cale, Leon Russell and the Eagles. I also listened to many solo albums by Don Henley. Most notably The Boys of Summer.
I also like Neil Young. There have been quite a few people say that my voice sounds like Neil Young.

I also derive inpiration from my songs from many different sources. Sometimes I hear a line at a party and think that would make a good story line.
The song "Sooner or later" came from a line I saw in a movie. The song "Back when I used to drink" was a line I heard from a person I heard talking to in church.
Anniversary song was derived from a singing job I was playing. I was playing the job and there were only a few songs left to play. He told me to play a song for his wife's anniversary. I really didn't have anything to play and I was embarrassed. After the job was over I went home and started to write the song. It is always a bit of magic to come up with the inspiration for a song. I usually derive most of my inspiration from sitting around playing the guitar and coming up with riffs. I'm not sure where it comes from and that is the most fun. Take a listen and I'm sure you won't be disappointed,
