I started writing songs when I was thirteen-years-old. I eventually performed/ made recordings/albums with bands, still searching and moving toward the voice I was trying to find in the lyrics.
My early writings were often described as 'vague' and 'not relatable', which left me searching for a more universal sound. During the writing and recording of my 2014 album ('First Event'), I quit rhyming and started saying what I really I wanted to say. I wanted my lyrics to help me disassociate myself from beliefs; paradigms and whatever concept of identity I had sold myself during my formative years. I am now more interested than ever in following my inspiration and impulse. I want to be led by an unconditional good feeling.
I have become a product of our times—I am fully engrossed in the world of computers and recording gear. While still leaning towards a "band sound", by going solo, I can take any direction I want without managing outward expectations.
As for a sound influence......well I think Roxette is pretty freakin awesome, but they just have a special place in my heart. Most of the time I lean towards a melodic seventies hard rock. Now and again I crave some pop like Selena Gomez or Lindsay Lohan......
At this point in my life, I would like to see where my songs will go using all the tools available to me. I have created an insular world of creation, where I have the kind of control I have longed for. It is a relationship with myself that is loving; all accepting and all consuming. I want to ride this for a while, until I am pulled in another direction.
