I am not a professional musician. Music is my hobby, that's all.
I have only just begun to concentrate on my own music. No mastered CDs yet, only self-burned demos.
No, never. I'm not a good performer, so homerecording is my only choice.
A lot. Folk, Rock, Pop, New Age, Ethno, Singer/Songwriter, ...
I like Simon & Garfunkel, Allan Taylor, Cusco, The Alan Parsons Project, Queen, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Abba, Pink Floyd, Eric Clapton, Andreas Vollenweider, Mike Batt, ELO - to name just a few.
I'm not into heavy metal, techno, house, hip hop and the like.
A Yamaha Motif XS7 and a lot of software. :)
