RESUME – I was weened on the music of the ‘Everly Brothers’, ‘Bob Dylan’ and the ‘Beatles’, before swiftly moving on to those 70’s classics, ‘America’ and ‘Crosby, Stills Nash & Young’.   From there I graduated towards the very clever and classy sounds of ‘Squeeze’ and ‘Tom Petty’, finally turning almost full circle back to the earthy and folky style of ‘John Hiatt’ and ‘Richard Thompson’.  Quite a ride.
