“This was actually a hard task, as I find my music tastes are constantly changing with the day, time and seasons, listening to a vast array of artists and genres. However, here are a bit of my constants:
“I’m always in some way, shape or form listening to Brandi Carlile and Janis Joplin. Both are two of my biggest inspirations as far as songwriting goes and just being bad-a$$, strong women in the music industry.
“Brandi Carlile’s newest album, By the Way, I Forgive You, is amazing, as well as any of her albums, in my opinion. I can always find something within her lyrics that will fit exactly how I’m feeling while listening to her. And the harmonies! I can’t speak enough how beautiful her harmonies are with her backing band, twin brothers, Tim and Phil Hanseroth.

“Janis Joplin’s tune, “Trust Me," is one of my favorites, off of her last album, Pearl. It just makes me happy whenever listening to it. I am a runner and I find Janis’ songs are really great for a good workout. Her energy comes out so easily and feeds into your soul…I love that!

“I have found that I always gravitate towards a lot of classic rock artists, such as Led Zepplin (a couple favorite tunes: “Darlene,” “Going to California,” “The Lemon Song”), Fleetwood Mac (“Songbird” and “Gold Dust Woman” are a few favorites), and The Beatles, of course. I would have to say that one of my favorite love songs of all time is Jim Croce’s, “Time in a Bottle.”
Being a blues fan, Luther Allison’s Bad News is Coming album is a massive favorite, with the song, “Evil is Going On,” being a favorite song off of the album. The harmonica parts are tasteful and straight-up blues harp – a big reason for my liking it.”
