I like a song that goes from the sublime to the ridiculous and back again.
I taught myself to play guitar on my mom's nylon string schoolteacher guitar, playing along to Joan Baez records. Then on to high school, when I got my own guitar and listened to Joni Mitchell. So the poetry of Joni, blended with the folk tradition and the humor of people like Malvina Reynolds and Shel Silverstein run through my songs. I took a break from music for a couple of decades, started playing out again around 2003. Recently I've picked up the ukulele and love how it makes me feel. Audiences too. Current favorite songwriters: Jason Isbell and Gretchen Peters. Also, Aireene Espiratu can do no wrong.
