He grew up listening to Handel, Zepplin, Mozart, Eric Clapton, Vivaldi, The Jacksons, Al Green, Jimi Hendrix... He grew up singing in the "Dow Family Singers" (he was 7 and sang soprano), choirs, folk groups, coffee houses and gospel groups. Growing up in San Diego, his creative freedom (and rebellion) started with 2 other choir-boy misfits: Russ & Tim. They sang as "Russ, Tim & Jim" in coffee houses and ran wild on church choir tours across the country :) They sang beautiful songs about love, truth, friendship.

Whatever I was...you know it was all because... I've been on the town... Washin' the bullshit down The watchman's out...kickin' your dreams about It feels so good...knowin' the watchman's gone It's like a song...
