Well I don't know if you can really call one guy a band. Even Jason Mraz, John Mayer and Dave Matthews have a band to back them up. But you have to start somewhere so I'm my own backing band. I play the guitars, the drums, the bass, the piano...the vocals. Hey at least I won't have a Behind The Music special. It's hard to break up with yourself. I'm a songwriter from Pennsylvania, and am just looking to get a little more exposure. I've been playing music for 17 years now and finally am putting all my ideas down. This is my lifes work in some ways.
There will be a new updated website up soon with the release of one of two albums.
I play live at The Hodle in New Freedom, PA once a month with a friend of mine. We have a 4 hour set down there. Other then that I hit open mics when I can, and record all the time. I love playing anywhere I get the chance to. My most special moment was the birth of my daughter. The song Lullaby was written for her, months before she was born. She is and will continue to be my greatest inspiration.
At first I was a punk rock guy. I played in a punk/ska band for a few years. Then as I got older I mellowed out a lot more. Lately I listen to a lot of Dave Matthews Band, Jason Mraz, Maroon 5 and John Mayer. But I take bits and pieces from everything and make it my own. On my upcoming record there is several styles. Ranging from slow and soft, to fast and edgy, even an instrumental to relax to.
How much server space do you guys have? The full list is on the website. I have 8 guitars, but my favorite is my Taylor 414ce LE5. I use a Tascam 2488 to record with lots of mics, and rack units, and pedals. You name it, and its there.
I'm a vegetarian!
