What type of music does he play...is he solo or in a band?
He is a singer songwriter. Pop music, for lack of better terms. He has put together a band to play his material.

This is from a few days ago but I couldn't find the thread.

On Sunday I took two of my favourite "kids" birthday presents to church. The first is my BFF's youngest son who turned 15. This is the boy I may have mentioned who has tourretes and while he is the sweetest guy I have ever known has struggles that none of us should have at twice his age. Anyway he loves golf and he and my Dad got along really well. So I gave him Dad's golf balls which I found in his closet - a whole pile of never used ones and knew that Dad would be so happy with them. I also have my young friend a book on golf tips from the pros. He liked the book but seemed more touched by the balls. That meant so much to me I still am smiling about it.

Second was a young lady, just turned 16 who has had many struggles of her own. She is being brought up by her sisters who are much older than her as the woman who she'd known as "Mom" passed away 5 years after she had been adopted into the family. This young woman is so talented and beautiful inside and out but very shy and lacking confidence. She wants me to teach her to cook in the worst way so I gave her the latest edition of the "Betty Crocker Cookbook" which was the first one my mother bought for me when I was about the same age. I said pick out some things you want to make and we will set a time to start lessons. Well she sat at the back of the church after service for about 20 minutes going through page by page. We are making deviled eggs on Friday!

To be able to have an influence on the lives of these young people will keep a smile on my face forever.
