Interaction with the Audience. Everyone is busy with their lives and to find time to want to be with me is both humbling and inspiring.
Is there a song on your latest CD release here that stands out as your personal favorite, and why?
“This songs for you” . I wrote it for my mother when she was first diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. I still remember her words when I sang and played it to her when she was still alive. She just looked at me, and in her eyes I saw my real mum when she whispered “It makes me Fly”

If you could meet, play a gig, co-write a song, have dinner, have a drink with any band or artist (dead or alive) who would it be?
