ABOUT

I've been playing guitar since I was 4 but havent done much with is as far as performing or doing anything with a band. I've never stopped playing since I picked up a guitar, I've always been very very passionate about writing music. I have a bunch of good concepts I'd love to turn into real songs more than anything. I went to a trade school to become a diesel mechanic cause I've worked on cars and trucks my whole life but I dont wanna do this for the rest of my life. In the recent years I've realized that I wont be satisfied with my life unless I'm doing something with music. My job gives me amazing benefits and I make a great salary that I could comfortably live on the rest of my life. I'd trade it all just to make this shit happen. That's how committed I am to this. Writing music is what I live for. Not busting my knuckles every day at work to the point to where my hands are too sore to play. The music produced now a days lacks the soul and the raw emotion that drove the youth back in the day. There are so many songs from back then that are timeless and still popular now. How many songs are being produced now a days that are gonna have the same effects as those songs did? None. Let's change that.

Influences

Got my attitude from Robert Plant, my style of playing is a lot like a cross between Mark knopfler, Jimi page, and Richie Blackmore. My riffs have a lot of Eddie Van Halen in them. Other than that, i grew up on these guys ---> Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Deep purple, Heart(70s), Blue Oyster Cult, The Eagles, America, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Rainbow, The Outlaws, Blackfoot, CCR, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Van Halen, Scorpions, Def leppard, Dokken.
