ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Music has been at the very core of my being for as long as I can remember. I was very fortunate to have been born into a very talented family. As I grew up listening to artists from classical to gospel, I soon became conscious of a special inner interest and desire for what I was hearing. My early exposure soon developed into a deep passion for performing and creating music. It has been said that music is like a heartbeat. I have found that to be very true.

I began formal instruction on the piano at the age of 6. After a number of years of studying piano, another instrument, which had already grabbed my attention, was strongly pulling at me. The guitar. My first memory of a guitar was hearing my Dad playing his Gibson Super 400. I was fascinated with the way his fingers moved and the sound he was getting from his instrument. When I was about 11 years old, my Grandfather gave me a "no name" guitar with cowboys painted on it. He said it was mine. It was very old at the time, but it didn't matter to me. He couldn't have given me anything better.

Not long after that my Dad played a 45 rpm record on which were four cuts of Chet Atkins. The first time I heard Chet's playing I was hooked and the deal was sealed. I must have driven my parents crazy playing Chet's tunes over and over as I tried to learn on my old guitar each note Chet was articulating.

Many musicians have had a direct affect on my music, but my older brother, David, a very gifted musician, was and still is my inspiration "supremo". He was primarily a keyboard specialist and a performing artist of the Wurlitzer Music Company. He was and still is my musical hero and the most influential presence and inspiration for my creativity. He played with a rare passion-a quality which never escaped me.

I had the great pleasure of meeting Chet a number of years ago. He commented to me at the time that he hoped he had communicated something with his hands through his playing. It is my hope, as well, that i, too, can communicate to the listener not only through a song, but a deeper feeling with this CD. My musical odyssey has taken many twists and turns, but it has no doubt brought me "To Where I Am" today. I am truly thankful for the ability to play and create music. There is no doubt my music is a gift from God. It has continued to develop as many talented and gifted musicians have shared their artistry and served as a source of inspiration along my musical journey.
