Profile Information

About Me:
The blues is a religon. You can hear it and feel just like you feel in church. Your head will bow, your eyes will close, hair will stand up on your arm. I can play it. I can make you feel it. I can.

I was born in the country and raised up in town. I'm natural born able to shake'em on down. People call me Porkchop because I used to be fatter than I am now. I used to play slide guitar and harmonica and sing in a band called the Black Diamond Heavies, but the time came for that to end.

I'm just 36 and I don't mind dying. I had the world's best Momma and the world's meanest Dad. I try to be a good boy but sometimes I'm bad. Playing guitar saved my life and now it's trying to kill me, but I just won't die.

I've done things that other people haven't, and gone places some people can't go. I'm sober. I try to not to assume that people have to be smarter or know more than me for me to learn something from them. Sometimes this approach works.

I've gigged a lot. Big gigs (they felt big, anyway) and smaller ones. Bars, festivals, restaurants, churches, roadhouses, townhouses, and outhouses. The boardwalk and the sidewalk.The whole U.S. and the U.K. twice. I've shared the stage with some famous people, and/or some people who were really good. Sometimes they're one in the same, sometimes not.

Thanks for the interest.

Good night, God bless, and as always thank you for shopping at my K-mart.

NEWSFLASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 01/06/09 I did it again ... I just recorded a new album's worth of material over Christmas. The recording was done at Fry Pharmacy Studio outside of Nashville by the owner and my new friend Scott McKewen, and officiated over in a gentlemanly fashion by Deep Blues Festival founder Chris Johnson. It's my street act, mic'ed up. Guitar, vocals, foot-thumpery and harmonica tracked in realtime, all at once, no overdubs, no second takes, no bullshit. Two inch tape, like Jesus intended. I'm happy with it. Sounds like me. I'm ready to get out and play again. I'm gonna post a little of it up on Myspace. Also, Mr. Johnson videotaped the whole thing and will be posting some of it up on Youtube. Listen to it. Watch it. Kill some time. If you like it, let me know. If you don't ... keep it to yourself.

If you want it, you can buy it below.
