I am rarely in the right, but if I am, it’s surely a mistake.
While musical when I was a teen, I put down the guitar for almost four decades. At the age of 59, I began writing songs, learning to play the guitar again, and trying to sing. None of these things were ever my dream or my passion, nor anything I was very good at. But the muse has been with me for several years, and music is now a part of my daily life. I have recorded three CDs and play in different kinds of venues around Albuquerque. You really never know.

1: What artist would you most love to work with?
Lyle Lovett. I love his style, his perfectionism and creativity.
2: What instrument brings you the most joy?
Maybe a saxophone...tenor or baritone...I just like the way they sound.
3: What was the worst advice?
"Using your music stand to remember your lyrics is not professional. "
4: What was your first concert?
My first real concert, other than playing local gigs, was playing at an old theater in Gallup, New Mexico. Five New Mexico songwriters performed original songs in this large, old historic venue. Super cool, and I was so terrified.
5: What/where is the best road food?
I don’t really “tour” other than to play a few odd venues around the state, but the best local food is at The Range Cafe, Bernalillo, NM.
6: What’s the best music advice you ever got?
Write more blues songs and use your slide more!
7: Who is your most surprising inspiration?
A first grader at my first concert who drew a picture of me while I was singing. It was a really good likeness. I was sitting in the balcony after I performed, and her dad walked her up to me. She gave me this darling drawing and said how much she liked my singing. Her dad said she had always wanted to be a singer and play the guitar. I framed the drawing and have it in my music room.
