ABOUT

Just moved to town...I am an easy going lyricist/songwriter with a clear vision of something new and unique I would like to put together. I am looking to collaborate with a female singer/songwriter who would like to have fun but also have an edgy voice to lend to the oppressed...I believe that peace and unity will come and division will die when we learn to live and let live celebrating and protecting each other’s freedom to be different. I don’t want to take political sides or be a political band but I do love to call out corruption hypocrisy and oppression wherever I see it no matter who is doing it. I tend to see the world in poetry and I think that we can write direct or poetic songs
About real life yet have an identity that would make those who choose to oppress such as those that make addictive poison foods, drugs ... corporations that want to send our teens to war for profit .... anyone on the side of profit or power over the good of the people .... cringe when they hear us no matter how much they may like the music .... I think it would be cool to take this stand yet demonstrate through our other music that even in times of protests and revolution that there are real feelings and people still experience love and loss, they still deal with difficult things or feel isolated and like they aren’t a part of anything. People even still have fun and party now and then and that you don’t have to lose your identity when you choose to do so... I think you can put on a show, entertain, have a voice, connect with the people and bring them together and that is what I would like to do ....

Influences

The deeper I get into writing original songs the more it is turning towards anything from the Doors, to early Metallica, pre grunge seattle punk, Rage, on up to newer bands like silversun pickups but with a unique sound that is edgy yet connects with people and evokes emotion.
