Personal Quote:

[on adding his own personality to his music] It's obvious that I love a lot of different kinds of music so what I want to do now is stretch the boundaries of so-called roots music as far as I can while making it singularly stamped with my own personality. I'm not worried about sounding exactly like some old blues or doo-wop record; screw that -- I want to sound exactly like me doin' that stuff. See more »
