Who are some of your biggest influences?
I remember my dad playing James Taylor in the car on family trips. I got into the Beatles late in high school, followed by newer British stuff like Coldplay, Radiohead, and Travis. More recently, I've enjoyed a lot of indie folksy stuff like Iron & Wine, Fleet Foxes, Bon Iver, et cetera.
What was the first song you learned on guitar?
The first song I tried to play on guitar was probably “Fire and Rain” by James Taylor. I realized that probably wasn’t going to happen right away so I learned “Wonderwall” by Oasis. That was far more successful.
What kind of guitar do you play?
I have several. The guitar I used exclusively on my WF&D album is a beautiful, handmade, 1930s-style slope-shoulder dreadnought made by a super-talented luthier named Dale Fairbanks.
Do you have any other albums?
I used to record little mini-albums (the industry term is an "EP") using my computer's built-in microphone and give them to friends. Sometime I’ll get them uploaded to my website.
Who does all your design work?
How frequently do you get asked questions like this about your music?
Somewhere between not often and never. Just humor me, okay?
Where can I find those Christmas songs you recorded?
Right here. Just promise me you won't play them until after Thanksgiving! Kidding, but only partly.
