Q: Share a funny moment or positive experience that has happened during your career.
I had a funny experience many years ago when I lived in the capital city of Ireland, called Dublin, these were the early years of my music. I had a meeting arranged with famous Irish Composer, Bill Whelan, who wrote the music for River Dance. I lived on the other side of the city and went on the bus to get over to the part of city he was based in, I was running late, with no cell phone, as at that time cell phones where not popular, so I ran off the bus and went into the nearest phone booth and rang his office, spoke to him and apologized for being late and tried to organize another meeting but he told me, he was too busy and that was a lost opportunity I felt afterwards.
Q: Other than fame & fortune, is there something you hope to achieve through music?
Yes, to touch people's lives through the message in my songs, to make people happy when they listen to my music and I to make a difference in the world via my music.
Q: Do you have a preference… vinyl records, cassettes, CDs, or downloads?
My preference would be vinyl and cassettes as I grew up in a time when they were all that were available and my early recordings would have been on cassette tape, I remember one of the first vinyl records i bought was from Kenny Rodgers and song was Coward of the county.
