Influences

Emotions as they transcribe to the aural spectrum. I am an audiophile. I enjoy harmony, dissonance, consonance, interplay and deviation. I dislike quantification, however I understand it’s necessity depending on the approach to music.

I just love music. If allowed, I’ll talk on the subject at great length. I’m not making music for money, or fame, although those would be welcome developments, rather, I am making music for the sake of the music.

I make songs I want to hear, not songs that I think will sell. Songs that someone can get lost in, and live through… not music that can be easily ignored while doing other things.

I understand the music intimately. My goal is to use it as a language to speak with, and to be heard, and understood, fundamentally, through my honest, heartfelt approach to the creation of music.

EQUIPMENT

I’m down to just a few pieces of gear. I had to sell it all a while back. Haven’t replaced much of it yet. I can bring my own bass and guitars. That’s about it.
