Initially conceived this album with a determination and vision to keep Blues music alive.
His style and sound are forged in the great tradition of his contemporaries and demonstrates his passion for Gibson Les Paul guitars, Harley-Davidson bikes and a philosophy to ‘never give up’
Brought to the table his vast studio experience, arrangement and keyboard skills and was instrumental in the construction, implementation and the patience required to undertake such a venture.
His vocal talent, lyrics and song writing abilities reflect his own experience, self belief and love of new horizons along the curves, bends and open roads we call life…
