Musical influences:  I fell in love with The Beatles at the age of 4. In my teens, I absorbed every lyric and melody of the legendary singer songwriters like Bob Dylan, Carole King, James Taylor, and Van Morrison. I developed a love of blues greats like Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Howlin' Wolf,  Lightnin' Hopkins and Eric Clapton. As punk music took the world by storm, in my early 20s, I couldn't get enough of The Police, Pretenders, The Eurythmics, Elvis Costello, and let's not forget pop icons Madonna and the late Michael Jackson. I especially love country music -everything from traditional to contemporary country. Patsy Cline, Bonnie Raitt, George Strait, George Jones, Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, Jason Aldean, Florida-Georgia Line, and many more.  I could go on, but I love all kinds of music so the list would be miles long!
