ABOUT

About Me:

I am a 24 year old Lighting Engineer working the 8-5 drudgery. An alright job but nowhere near as fun as my two main passions: music and surfing. I am a singer/songwriter with a decent amount of material (some more polished than others). I love playing with other musicians; when you are jamming on a song and everything goes together just right there is almost no bigger rush for me. Currently I play acoustic exclusively although I think some of my songs would lend themselves well to electric and I am not opposed to playing electric or experimenting with other instruments. Its just acoustic definitely lends itself better to a solo singer/songwriter.

Music Experience:

I started music in middle school playing the French horn (The most beautiful brass instrument in my biased opinion). I continued to play it all the way through high school. I also played guitar in the school jazz band so I definitely have some jazz influences in my guitar playing. I love using interesting chords that incorporate dissonance and resolution. Once in college my songwriting really started to take off. My playing has always sort of been off and on as I get busy with other things but I find that I am most happy when I’m playing consistently. Since my life dream is not to be doing commercial lighting I have a renewed sense of commitment to my music. Even if I could just make a modest living playing gigs it would be a dream come true. I am not an excellent vocalist by any means but I can sing my own songs well as my voice compliments the style I play.

Song Writing Philosophy:

I believe that a good song communicates a particular emotion through imagery and feel of the music. My main goal when I write songs is to evoke a particular emotion in people by generalizing the song (lyrics) in such a way that everyone can relate their own personal experiences to the song and make it their own in a sense. I have always found it fascinating how the same song can mean something different to each person that hears it, but unites everyone with a common emotion.
