Influences range from the great delta blues players through to many more modern exponents of the genre.
Currently writing songs for my next solo album. Release date? When it's done :-) . This next album whilst still be essentially blues will be a lot more "cross genre" as the songs I'm writing a drawing from a whole range of my influences, jazz, latin, folk, funk etc. Pretty Nose is one example I may previews some others here and / or on my myspace / website but most will be held back for the final release. final release.

I am glad you are beginning to recover...it is very frustrating for sure...but it sounds like you are on the mend.

Andy is it getting any better? I left more comments in the topics. One thing I brought up is don't try to talk in a noisy bar...worst thing for you. See topics for other stuff I mention. This is all I know about it...cold dry air will aggravate it too...stay away from smoke too.

Thank you very much for your kind comment. Some highly accomplished, emotive music here. Congratulations

thanks for dropping by... i'm just playing 'postcard blues' and wow you got that lightning hopkins style down to a tee. vocals too. authentic. right on. i used to do lightning's 'ain't it crazy'. you've inspired me to dust it off and see if i can swipe some of your licks while i'm at it.
yah, i got that larrivee on ebay for a grand. from philadelphia. funny, cuz they're made right here in vancouver. but i liked that mahogany top and there it was.

Both versions OK!

thanks a lot for your comment
best to you

Andy, you are so sweet! I really appreciate you letting me know about the stream situation. I had no idea. A while back, none of my songs were playing... so I reloaded all of my mp3s. I had never tried the stream function... so I was oblivious until your visit.
I'm really looking forward to bringing in more music this year. Its been 2 years since our first ep was released. My big resolution is that of working in more focused time for songwriting, instead of after hours when I can barely keep my eyes open.
I know I've said it before, but just gotta say again... THANK YOU for being "friends" with me. I am very grateful.
