One of the best things you can do in life is to learn to be fully
yourself. Truly who you are and not what you or others think you
should be. I have found that one of the best ways to do that
is music. It's always been a blessing, one that often keeps me up
half the night, but something I can't do without any more than
eating or sleeping (though the latter I tend to neglect quite often.)
My music tends to span the gamut of styles, as you have probably
noticed. I just write whatever comes to me, with no censoring
whatsoever. This has brought me some rather uncomfortable songs
such as "The Carousel" and "Wolf." It's important to remember
that I do not always write from my own perspective, I might be
writing from yours. Or maybe the world's. Or I might be speaking
in pure symbolism. Or, I might be speaking pure nonsense. :)
I plan to keep on living, keep on writing, keep on playing, solo
for the most part, although I do enjoy collaboration with other
songwriting pals. These pals also span the gamut, I have friends
in pure folk and others in crazed black-metal-surf-grunge.
I have an interesting background in that I received a Masters
Degree in Music Composition, writing string quartets, orchestra
music and the like. However, I ended up returning to the world
of songwriting, abandoning the more complex styles of music.
However I do not regret my time spent in these pursuits as I
certainly learned much about orchestration, musical styles and
history, as well as receiving excellent vocal training.
Eternally curious and playful, I have been known to hop in the car
and take rides todistant places on a whim. I have a hard time sitting
at home on a sunny weekend day. Especially when I live in such a lovely
location. Interests include music obviously, creating shiny shiny
artworks, barfing up soundbytes in my sick webcomic. I am also
working on a novel. At any rate, it's rare that I can't find something
interesting to do! I am looking to continue performing in the New
England area, so if you are interested in inviting me to play at an event,
radio show, etc. please contact me at email@example.com.
