Everything changed when I first heard Stevie Ray Vaughan. He was an incredibly inspiring artist. A true guitar hero, with an amazing power to his playing and a soulful voice to match. When I visited the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles back in June, I could not believe my luck when I came across SRV's exclusive exhibit which was compiled by his brother Jimmie. To be honest, I was emotional. I realized what an impact Stevie had on me when I was a teenager and what an impression he made on my musical life and still does! He left us all way too young. I'm so glad I got to see him play live on two different tours.
Seeing his guitars, gear and other personal items, brought me back to that feeling I had, as a young hungry musician. I was just starting out and how I wanted to find my own voice in music. As I'm currently working on new recordings, I'm inspired to dig deep and find some more of my own originality to channel through. To share with as many people as I can through my music! For that is the ultimate with creating music and art; that you make others feel something within them too! So, no matter what life dishes up each day, the journey continues to stay the course and finish what I've started!
So Thank You Stevie Ray Vaughan.
