I’ve always been into 60’s/70’s music. I grew up listening to The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Doors and these are the main bands who inspired me to actually learn to play. From Ray Manzarek’s amazing keyboard skills to Keith Richards’ foot-stomping guitar riffs, It was songs like “Light my fire” and “Brown Sugar” that led me to learning both the Keyboard and the Guitar.
I’m also a big fan of Motown. It was hearing songs like “Think” by Aretha Franklin and “Superstition” by Stevie Wonder that led me to first picking up the Bass guitar. A combination of the distinctive bass lines, tambourines, strong vocals, horn and string sections ticked all the boxes for me and is why Motown is still one of my biggest influences today.
