Born: 24 Oct 1936
Growing up, I listened to a lot of jazz and blues records - John Coltrane and Etta James. I was also really into Radiohead and the BeeGees.
I like songs in all different genres and types. My production and songwriting is everything from pop rock to hip-hop and everything in between.
Every song I write, including 'Too Close,' always starts on the guitar.
