Accidentaly ran onto a harmonica workshop announcement, and instantly fell in love. Playing in a local soul/r'n'b band and, less public, playing some mean blues with my father-the one who opened a new world to me by buying me my first harmonica CD- Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee-Whoopin' The Blues. Currently owning 6 harmonicas and an AUDIX Fireball Microphone with a Crate GX15 amp. Prefer clean tone, but I like distortion too. Since the workshop, I've been practicing with Steve Baker's "Interactive Bluesharp Workshop" program. Been playing for a year. In my free time I mostly write, read and play basketball.
