And I had never heard bluegrass music in my whole life; I'd only heard country music. And I didn't really like country music but there was something about watching people play guitars and banjos and fiddles that really inspired me. Q: Have you always played instrumental stuff, or were you more of a singer-songwriter starting out?
A: I started out as a singer-songwriter. I was about 18 years old when I started playing cover songs in different places like art festivals around central Florida, and in school I played songs for people then I started writing my own. And I was covering people and also doing my own original songs right from the beginning.

Q: How did you evolve into being more of an instrumental artist? A: Because I started performing so young and so early, I just did that for 15 years. When I came to Colorado, I played a lot. Then I started to go through a life change and decided I didn't want to play music at all. I guess I reached a burnout point. But then after a year I started just playing guitar instrumental songs.
I started writing one instrumental song after the next and started putting together some recordings and those recordings ended up becoming an album. I would have never imagined doing an instrumental album, and then I ended up getting a few awards. So because right from the start I got recognition on a national level, I was like, "I think I'm just going to stay with this.

Q: Why is that? Is there a different feel to your instrumental stuff? A: I think it's because guitar is my passion and I feel a lot more confident with guitar. I think a lot of my creativity just came out a whole lot more than when I tried to write lyrics. Not that those songs were bad.
I even sang at Red Rocks once — I opened a concert for Dan Fogelberg — and they were all original songs.
People still like some of my early singer-songwriter songs, but the guitar, I think, is a lot stronger and has a lot more passion in it. Q: I see in your liner notes that each song was inspired by a different experience. How does that come across — how do you write a song about something when it has no words? A: Instrumental songs are kind of like emotional stories.
A lot of them are inspired by dreams or memories or experiences, healing times. I put myself in that situation or I'm in that situation because of a particular experience.
Songs are like energy, and so I kind of shape the energy to fit that emotion — using notes to express what that energy is at that moment in time. Victory Music Review with Heidi Fosner.
