I believe blues music is a conduit for the human spirit. I grew up on the southside of Chicago, and have been privileged to either perform with, share a stage with or meet many of the blues masters including Lowell Fulson, Muddy Waters, Pee Wee Crayton, Albert King, Etta James, Willie Dixon, B.B. King and Honeyboy Edwards. Since I wrote my first blues song at the age of 14, this music has linked me to everyone who understands the blues. Whatever I'm feeling, good or bad, chances are someone else has experienced something similar in their lives and will connect with what I say. I tell my own stories through my music to be part of that common connection between all of us. That's the power of the blues.
