Tell us a little more about you in your own words (what you like, what instrument [if any] you play, etc).
My mother was a Jimmy Rodgers (singing brakeman), Carter family and Hawaiian music lover so I grew up hearing lots of that. I love the sound of lap steel guitar. I like lots of styles of music Blues, Funk, R & B, Reggae, . My own style is alt country.
My mother passed on in 1997 leaving me her beautiful Gibson J100 cutaway. It's taken me all over europe playing gigs. I also have a fantastic Beltona Resonator guitar made by brilliant NZ luthier Steve Evans whose customers include Eric Clapton.
