My heros have always been outlaws. Growing up in a religious household without a television set, the radio was my only escape. My evenings would start with the family listening to the gospels, but later was when the radio would truly come alive. With my ear pressed to the speaker, I would listen to Hank, Left and other Ryman outlaws. Through the music, I imagined places I had never been before and it wasn't long before I started learning how to play the guitar and sing.
For me, music became like air and water; I needed it to survive.
