Influences & Inspiration
That is a broad question as I have been through so many style changes! Currently, my main influence is Paco de Lucia in the Flamenco world. I really love what the Gypsy Kings do as a band. As far as fusion/jazz, I have been very influenced by Al DiMeola, Pat Metheny and Larry Carlton. I am a huge fan of Hiromi Uehara, the jazz piano phenom from Japan. In the contemporary world, I really like Adele, Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Ne Yo. My classic rock mainstays are probably Eric Clapton, Santana and the Allman Brothers as well as a few different psychedelia bands.
