Music has been there since I could climb up to the piano & writing has always been the easiest way for me to communicate with myself. Songs have wandered into my head since I was a little kid.
Inspiration for me comes from every moment, leaf, thing, eye, animal, dream, cloud, nothing, person.
The people who inspire me are the ones who go out of their way to express the way they feel or see or hear the Universe, not the way that is accepted or the easiest way. Finding the music and words of Neil Young, the Chili Peppers, the Doors, the Beatles, Bob Dylan and the Beach Boys, were all big moments for me growing up.
