I've been performing for 15+ years. Since I was around 16.... Do the math... I started playing my sister's guitar and learning how to make my own recordings and over-dubs.... Basically, self taught. I sponged off a lot of the local talent and my band mates.
What was the first concert you ever went to?
I think it was Van Halen with my best sister Kim and my cousin Erica. Not sure how long ago it was but I think I was only 16-17 years old. I remember going to some crazy after party. I learned a great many things that day... LoL~
What gear do you use?
I play a Fender Tele through a modded Fender Super Champ I bought from my buddy Tom. I don't really have a favorite piece of EQ.
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
Sadly, Bon Jovi and Boys II Men and several other cheesy 80's bands.... (Thanks to my sisters) I remember really getting into the grunge era stuff. Pearl Jam, Nirvana, AIC. After that I was all about R&B Soul music. Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding, Donny Hathaway to name a few...
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
The JLB. (Narcissistic-ally..)
If you could jam with anyone, who would it be?
Stevie Wonder obviously and Layne Staley from AIC.
What's the biggest audience you ever performed to? What's the smallest?
10,000+ at the Rock 101 Sky Show in Manchester, NH and 6,000 two nights in a row in Iceland with my fellow contestants from Rockstar: Supernova.
You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
