| I approach everything in my life the same way; if it feels right, I know it.
| What is music anyway? It's a form of communication, and that's why I play the kind of music that I think - that I hope - can communicate with people.
| That's my ideal day, time with my boys.
| The whole rise of new adult contemporary music and smooth jazz was a nice surprise.
| Being a purely instrumental album, it makes a musical statement, not a religious one, and I hope that people can feel the emotion of the great melodies, even without the words.
| I've learned that you simply can't control those bad vibes.
| I learned so much about playing and touring being on the road and in the studio with Jeff, but I'd always played a lot of gigs in Seattle even prior to joining the Fusion.
| It wasn't until Duotones that I felt my true voice come out.
| Finally, I was no longer a student and was making music for myself.
| I'm responsive to my public, but I also follow my heart.
| The Moment is an album that contains the best music I have ever produced.
| When I play live, I feel how the audience is going and follow and lead at the same time.
| I've never personally criticized anyone else's music, but I know that the public's real problem is not the music I make but the perception that I play simple music for money only and for the notoriety and to increase my popularity.
| Just because people play songs with great technique doesn't mean the records are better.
| I really create everything I do from the heart.
