I've some songs posted on my page.
I started with hard rock and heavy metal.
Then I played hard rock and originals, played a lot with a local drummer.
I liked most music.
I liked to listen to:
Beatles, Yes, Santana, Blues Brothers, Leo Kottke, Steely Dan, Doobie Brothers, Brian Setzer, Led Zeppelin, Moody Blues, Skynyrd, Credence, Alman Brothers, Jeff Beck, Mamas & the Pappas, Aerosmith, Beethovan, ELP, REM, Frampton, Grover Washington, Sade, Tangerine Dream, C S N & Y, Cheryl Crow, Enya, Duran Duran, Strauss, Jefferson Airplane/Starship, Madonna, Pink Floyd, 3 Dog Night, Doors, Depeche Mode, Queen, Cars, JJ Cale, Jethro Tull, K.T. Tunstal, Peter Paul & Mary. . . many, many others.
Then I eventually went on to write and write and write . . .
All that influenced my writing, which tends to blend genres . . .
unusual styles of jazz, folk-rock, boogie, blues, finger-picking. . . . many crossover styles, my own styles . . .
Some of the songs have multi harmonies, many have unusual rhythms or chords. . . . not many "cookie-cutter" songs . . . I just wanted to hear new styles of music . . .
