So what do I love about making music? For me, it's always about the freedom. If I'm making music, I'm not thinking about anything else. I can actually get lost in it. As a young kid, listening to the jukebox was my salvation. It was the only thing that would get me into another space. Areas of speciality include Live Bands. Not only did I know every song on the radio, I knew every song my mother had in her record collection. My mother would sing; it made her happy. She was a big fan of Ray Charles, she loved to sing and dance to his records. My dad hated Ray Charles with his whole heart, he thought he was a shocker. So there was a bit of family conflict there.
