Who has inspired you as a musician?
I can almost trace my exposure to music through the chronological history of rock and roll. When I first started listening to music actively, I liked Chuck Berry and The Beatles. These are extremely ingrained into my DNA. I then got into bands like Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin. At one point, I think I would listen to the 1st 5 Led Zeppelin albums in sequence every day when I got home from school. I probably would have listened to all of them, but I didn’t have the money to buy them all! (laughs). Of course, AC/DC, Peter Frampton and a lot of the 70’s rock and roll bands were on my CD rack too, I love that era of music.
My dad (Sound Engineer) was working with bands like Edgar Winter, Dave Mason, and Pat Benatar at this time so getting to see these bands live very much became a part of my musical identity. But I remember a little after I started learning guitar that my dad said, “one day I’ll show you Joe Satriani, but only when you’re ready for it”. Well, of course, now I wanted to hear it. So I bugged him and bugged him to let me hear some of this stuff – this is pre-internet by the way – until he finally let me hear Surfing with the Alien. And woah! It was like this whole other realm of guitar playing had opened up. The outer limits! So, I started getting into that era of guitarists which included guys like Randy Rhoads, Kirk Hammett, and later John Petrucci. At one point, I started getting into heavy metal, which I eventually decided was too dark for where I personally wanted to be, so I kind of rebounded and started getting into blues stuff. My dad moved to Austin at one point and I was fortunate to witness the Arc Angels at Antone’s. That led to that whole circle with Storyville and even Tedeschi Trucks Band. So now, I feel like I’m at a point where I’m just this completely full soaked sponge who is dying to squeeze out all of this collective material into the music that I do.
