How did this new album and overall concept for it come about, and what are your ultimate goals with it?

I wanted to play bass melodies and approach them like a singer. All of the songs on this project have special meaning in my heart. The song Appaloosa is a tribute to my Dad Merl Saunders. We listened to the song over and over in his living room when I was young. We loved every aspect of that song. Every song on this project has that special story to it. The goal for me with this CD is to bring my music to a larger audience.

How would you describe what inspires you to do what you do?

I am stimulated by all the great music I hear everyday by all the great artist of the world. I listen to all types of music and I love to play bass and produce music. I love to be around all of the young people with all their ideas that are so fresh. And finally I love the romance of life. My desire to play live and have people love what I love is the thing that makes me reach for better music all the time.

What in your life outside of your music drives you in a creative sense?

My Mom, my wife, my kids, my grandkids and nice people are what makes my mind think about nice things. Being around water also is my calming force. Sailing or driving a speedboat gives me lots of ideas. From that comes my music.

If you were to choose to learn a new instrument that you’ve never played before, what instrument might that be?

The cello would be that instrument for me.

Who currently is drawing your attention as artists you’re excited about?

Nathan East is doing things that make you love the Bass and the music business. Not only is he a great bassist, the one time I played on a record with him he was totally a gentleman. He is doing what I want to do with his solo career.

What’s your absolute favorite part of the World, and why?

My favorite place would be the island of Corsica. It is about the perfect size and surrounded by water. The people were so very friendly and there were still lots of places where you could just sit alone on a beach and be one with the world.
