What instruments do you play, and how did you learn to play them?
I play electric and acoustic guitar, mostly. I also play drums, piano and bass well enough to get through my songs.
I was self-taught. When I was about 12 or 13, my sister bought me my first guitar and I still have that.
Where do you write your music?
Anywhere I can. My music comes to me whenever it wants to.
I can try and sit down and write a song, but I usually wait until I get inspired by something. That might be my wife, my friends or places I've been.
What's the best performance you ever gave?
That's hard, cause they've all been really great. It's really the audience that can make a show memorable.

People have fun with it. I like it when people have fun, and I like to have fun as well. We always have a laid-back time.
What kind of music do you listen to in the car, or while relaxing?
I listen to all kinds of music. Lately, I love Latin, African, reggae. I love drums and symphonic music. It's whatever I feel at the time, however I feel musically.
What's the biggest musical challenge you've faced?
I love any kind of challenge. A couple years ago, I was coming to a show from
I got there half an hour before showtime. Luckily, I've never missed a show.
What can people expect from tonight's show?
I'm just going to bring a lot of the classics and some new stuff, and I just want to have a good time with everybody.
