First Memorable Musical Experience:

When I was a kid, I remember watching CBS News special reports and hearing Copland’s Appalachian Spring. I thought, “God! That music is so beautiful! How can I be a part of that?”

On My iPod:

I’m sort of an old-school rock and roll guy: Sting, Alison Krauss, James Taylor, Eric Clapton, k.d. lang, Joni Mitchell, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. And I love Bruno Mars! He does such neat, creative stuff.
