The beginning was, as a youth, listening and visiting my blind aunt and uncle. They were both gospel musicians, she did vocals and he played guitar. I moved to Boston years later and became friends with James Montgomery (Johnny Winter Band) who helped turn me onto the blues. From there I mutated through blues, rock, R & B, and then to reggae. I've spent the bulk of my career, 1973 to 1997, playing reggae extensively in the US and in Europe. Performing with John Lee Hooker, Lele Gaudi, Ginger Baker, WDX, DEA and more recently with Dr. Israel, Umar bin Hassan, and Trumystic. In 1997 I stopped touring as a guitarist/vocalist and started to study producing and to assemble what is today the House O' Dub studio.
