Don't Worry, I'm A Pilot is an acoustic/electric indie/punk project.

Lots of slashes, I know.

The whole concept, in the first place, was to write songs with just acoustic guitar and vocals.

So I wrote a number of songs and started the process of recording them. As soon as I started recording stuff, I realized I wanted to add larger instrumentation and arrangements. So I did. The songs went from guitar and vocals to stuff with multiple guitar parts, multiple keyboard parts, percussion parts, harmonies, etc.

So it's turned into a sometimes acoustic, sometimes electric indie and alt/punk project.
