“I am a philosopher and want everyone to get along, That yearning comes out in my songs. I have lost my desire to impress people and would rather relate to others and have us understand each other. That is more powerful.
I have always liked the idea of looking at peoples’ lives from the past. People once lived without electricity in our cabin and I think about what they went through. Music lends itself to memories and sounds of the past. I grew up in the country and played cars and trucks in the dirt and wrote songs about that. I listened to my dad sing Elvis Presley, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Rolling Stones, Hank Williams, Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash. I was sheltered for a while and that music is what I knew.
No one wants to be forgotten. I want to write a song that is listened to and loved at any time by any age, Bringing old music back to life gives it a chance to evolve even more. My dad always talked about the things he wanted to do with music but he never did them. I am living some of his dreams.”
