“I think my music would be akin to a smorgasbord, a full buffet – it is designed to be eclectic in the truest sense of the word. A plate full of blues, jazz, and Spanish guitar, with a side dish of classical, funk and hip hop topped off with a slather of the Nawlins gospel sauce. Then for dessert I would say a dish of swing, be-bop, and progressive jazz!” – Michael Powers
