About MeI have been a professional musician for over 30 years. I started out a drummer in the 70's & turned to percussion to free me up to blow more harp. I toured all over the world & recorded with Johnny Shines & Robert Jr. Lockwood. I also toured & recorded with Full Moon, Beanland, John Kilzer, Southside Blues Band & Lost in the Mail. I currently play with Caroline Shines (Johnny Shines' daughter) & I am a coordinator/ harmonica instructor for the Alabama Blues Project. I am the staff percussionist for the Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama & a full time faculty member at the University of Alabama School of Social Work. My harp heros are James Cotton, Sonny Boy Williamson, Jimmy Hall, Topper Price, Magic Dick, Adam Gussow, Jon Gindick, Jason Ricci & Cheryl Arena. Drumming is my heart & Harmonica is my soul.
Continually being a better musician, vintage watches, the history & culture of the American blues
