About Artist

Started listening to music my parents played while i was in the womb! Hank, Lefty, Ernest, Conway, Loretta Dolly and all those country folk from back  in the day! So many I can`t name them all!  Grew up listening to my Uncle Jim and my Cousins Hal and, as we called him Jackie( check out Porch Pickin`. Learning how to play guitar through `osmosis`! Learned to sing harmony with them on tunes by the Everly`s,Elvis, Little Jimmy Clanton(Just a Dream), and oh! my god the list is just too long! Then came the one hit wonders of the 60`s, and the biggies of the 60`s, such as, CCR, Steppenwolf, Dion, Arlo, Janis, and the country folks I kept hidden from my classmates(Cash, Kristofferson, Willie Waylon Who I believe I saw both of those guys in 69 at Proctors in Schenectady, and Cash at the Albany Armory(my mom and dad took me to so many shows[package,they used to call them] that i can`t name everyone on the hands of all my friends!!The most awesome were Hank Jr. when he was about 21, and Charlie Pride(That guy woulda sang all night if they let him), and Jerry Lee really pissed my dad off because he was late and then proceeded to swear at the audience! Then there was Buck Owens and the Beatles and.... Let`s move on to the present... Still love willie, miss Waylon and Cash and can`t wait for the next Ryan Adams cd!! Love almost all the music out of Texas like Pat Green, Robert Keene, honeybrowne, and sooo many more ! This could go on forever so I guess i`ll stop now and let you check out my music and pics of family.  Thanks Cliff Allen
