He counts the Black Keys, Dave Matthews, Arcade Fire, Ozomatli, The North Mississippi All Stars, My Morning Jacket and others among his avowed fans.

He returns to the US and Canada in April / May when he will be bringing his rocking Desert Blues guitar wizardry to a variety of cities for the first time.
