What is your first musical memory?
Growing up in Miami, I remember being at school outside in the play ground and hearing this amazing music drift through the air. I walked towards the sound, which was coming from a limo parked under a tree in the shade, and heard “Sitting on the Dock of the Bay” for the first time, sung by Otis Redding… And I was hooked.
What or whom do you go to for musical inspiration?
Living and working in Los Angeles since 1981 has exposed me to amazing music and musicians. I listen to what my peers are writing and also find out who they are listening to. I have learned how important it is to go back to the original source for musical inspiration. If you like the Stones, then you might like Muddy Waters. I also am inspired by traveling and experiencing the sounds and cultures of the world. Dig deep for inspiration.[su_spacer size=”20″]
