Working as a barista in Old Town Pasadena many moons ago, I stumbled upon the name "Robert Johnson" through a local guitar player who happened to be playing a riff from "Crossroad Blues" . This was my introduction to "Delta Blues" and the first time I ever truly "listened" to music. As fascinating as it was, it was only the very tip of the iceberg, in the years since that moment I have discovered a wide array of early Blues, Delta Blues, Country and Folk pioneers who inspire me heavily and encourage me to share their sounds as well as my own with the world - through a variety of early covers as well as originals.
