Contemporary Christian music in a folk style a la Chris Rice, early Steven Curtis-Chapman. All original work. Some cross-over, but mostly Christian music with powerful lyics and strong imagery. Singing voice has been compared to Judy Collins, Joan Baez and Janis Ian. Guitar is fingerpicking style influenced by James Taylor, Gordon Lightfoot, Bonnie Raitt with a few ragtime, blues and celtic curves thrown in there.

Vocal influences: Emmy Lou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Bonnie Raitt, Karla Bonoff, Susan Ashton, Joan Armatrading, Sarah McLachlan
Guitar influences: James Taylor, Bob Dylan, Richard Saslow, Lennon and M
