Achieving anything without a struggle is not as satisfying!

I’m accustomed to life on the road but my recent 500+ mile trip had me on a very different set of wheels. This was a grueling week long bike trip across New York State to raise money for cancer research organized by the Empire State Ride. Drum roll...we raised 1 million dollars!

On my pretty Specialized Diverge bike (in mauve with lime accents) I zoomed past gridlocked traffic in New York City, climbed killer hills along the Hudson River against stubborn headwinds and peddled through blazing heat in one of the hottest weeks on record all the way to Niagara Falls.

I fell, I got up, I almost cried, I did cry, but despite the challenges, I learned that riding a bicycle brings me joy. Being on the bike focuses my mind in a way that music does for me. Music and cycling absorb the stress of life and clears space for feelings of gratitude to flood in. The sound of the wind swirling around my ears as I rocket down a monster hill is just as exhilarating as the sound of a beautiful melody. My heart beats for biking and music.

It is an honor to have your work recognized by your peers. It is a very proud moment indeed. I was not sure how well the album would be received but I was sure that I was being true to the inspiration that was the driving force behind the music. I feel very fortunate that this album, created with love, is now receiving love of its own.

London Blues Week

London Blues Week

Honored to be invited to perform at the London Blues Week with the beautiful Sharrie Williams. I always find it inspiring to play London.

On Tour with Walter Trout

On Tour with Walter Trout

I first met Walter Trout in Oklahoma, at a Blues festival, while on tour with Joe Louis Walker. Walter has a natural ease with people. I felt immediately comfortable in his presence. 

Recording Never Say Never

Recording Never Say Never

Making a great album is more than just writing great songs. It's about relationships and how musicians communicate with each other. I had a great time recording the new album with my band.

Robin Trower Support

Robin Trower Support

As a huge Procol Harum fan, I've always admired the artistry and genius that is Robin Trower. You can imagine what an honour it was to be asked to support Robin in London for a sold-out show at the beautiful Islington Assembly Hall.
