My influences included,all the great southern rock bands like the Outlaws,Blackoot,ARS Skynryd also Aerosmith, Led Zepplin, Eric Clapton, and Jimmy Hendrix. In high school, I met Damon Johnson, who later became known for his stints with Brother Cane, Whiskey Falls, Ted Nugent, John Waite, and Alice Cooper. We put a band together, and I played my first club at the age of 18. They continued to play a wide variety of venues, including clubs, dances, proms, and outdoor events. I continued playing music, after parting ways with Damon, and like many musicians, experienced the many ups and downs of being a performer. At the age of 30, I put aside music to begin my journey into parenthood. After seven years of not playing at all, My love for music prompted me to pick up my guitar and step back into the music scene. I began jamming with various bands and artists, and finally came to be a founding member of Seven Day Ride in the fall of 2006.
I have played with so many great musician, some that still travel the plant with diffent bands, I feel very blessed!
