Influences & Inspiration
I am a songwriter of 40 years. I watched Beatles on Ed Sullivan. I learned to perform during the 60's and influenced heavily by British and West Coast Rock to Motown. (Beatles to Stones to Van Morrison to Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Poco, CSNY, James Taylor, Jackson Browne, Eagles to Stevie, Ray Charles, Tempations, Smokey Robinson, Marvin Gay etc) I have 4 albums of excellent original music, that would reflect these roots.
In recent years I have gravitated towards Modern Country music a la: Brooks and Dunn, Alan Jackson, Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum, Kenny Chesney, Toby Keith, Johnny Cash and such. I pride myself in capturing the essence of the genre in every song I sing. I perform with artists that fit the genre of the evening. Jim Goodman
