Grew up in rural Ruffin, NC. In my first Band at age 13.  Have played and sung many types of music. Blues has been my biggest influence. I also love playing Rock & Roll, Motown, and East Coast Beach Music.

 I met the woman of my dreams at Burger Chef in 1968, now Pete's Burgers. Married in 1970. She is what inspired me to write "Got a Real Good Woman". She has stood by me through thick and thin. There will never be another one like her. 

 "I feel what I play and sing."  "I play and sing what I feel."   "I really enjoy sharing this with others."

Listened to 60s Rock as well as Soul and Country music during my teens. I first played Blues in 1971 and have played many styles of music but Blues and Soul remain my favorites.

"I'm drawn to Blues and Soul because the bass lines and great grooves are the backbone of both styles."
