Where are you from?
I am originally from Oklahoma. Have traveled to 6 continents.
Describe your sound:
I write and perform mostly smooth jazz and easy listening music these days.
Tell us about your new project:
My latest track features some brilliant musicians from around the world. Bruno Elizabetsky from Brazil is on acoustic guitar. Chris White from the UK is on tenor saxophone. Chuck Sabo, also from the UK is on drums and percussion and I am on piano and lead vocals. The song was produced and recorded in my studio which is located in the beautiful Ozark mountains located in northwest Arkansas.
Who inspires you:
My #1 inspiration would be the Beatles for sure.
Where do you see your career in 5 years?
In 5 years I will be doing exactly what I have been doing for the last 45 years. Making music!
Tell the people something they need to know:
I am married with 4 daughters, three of whom I record produce. They are called the Treetop Sisters. They had their first chart record (an original holiday song I wrote for them called Nicki and the Crew) back in 2013 when the youngest was only 6 years old!
