With prominent influences rooted in southern rock and blues, such as the Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Stevie Ray Vaughan, Atkins shows a variety of ability on guitar from acoustic finger style to howlin’ slide guitar. Surrounded by music through the club/bar scene at age 15 developed Atkins into a self-sufficient sideman early on. Honing his craft as a guitarist with his own band and other local acts, Atkins decided he too had something to say through music and decided to write and compose his own songs. Realizing music was his passion, he continued on attending Catawba College where he earned a degree in Popular Music and Music Business. The three and a half years spent evolving his craft at Catawba presented him the opportunity to learn the craft of songwriting and develop even further as a guitarist as he toured the east coast with Canadian Blues artist Sue Foley. Graduating from Catawba College in December of 2016, Atkins found himself in Nashville, TN where he attended the first year program Segue 61, an immersive 8 month music industry program to bridge the gap between industry executives/players and up and coming music professionals. During this time Atkins teamed up with singer/songwriter Rylie Bourne of Springfield, IL. Writing and composing together, they’ve now put together the upcoming Spring tour.
