Smokestack Lightnin' Home Page -- The Blues Profile Page
Raised singing in the church in Ocala, FL, I found the blues when I started playing guitar, quickly gravitating towards slide players and Muddy Waters. After high school I moved from North Florida to Orlando and began playing as part of the local scene. I've been fortunate enough to open for Buddy Guy, John Mayall, Trombone Shorty, Shemieka Copeland and others. In 2012 I released my first full length album, American Hustle and was able to play behind it for 3 years. I'm currently recording and releasing new music right here in Central Florida being backed by some of the finest musicians in the area. Although my sound has certainly moved out of just the blues realm into a more RnB driven sound, the blues will always be the well I go to when I'm thirsty.
