I write a lot of music in many different styles, though typically in the vein of Progressive Rock/Jazz. I love to record, mix and produce my songs at my home studio and enjoy the art and craft of making an album. This goes back to my childhood obsession with a reel-to-reel tape machine, spending hours recording at various speeds or running the tape backwards and drawing my inspiration from the sound.
My solo albums are theme-based which brings cohesion to a collection of songs that are otherwise stylistically varied. My longer songs allow for a lyrical theme to develop and repurpose the same musical idea in multiple ways, but I also like to write more concise songs or ideas better suited for film music. Give me a scope, and I will compose accordingly.
Unusual guitar sounds intrigue me, and I always play to the sounds I hear. People tell me that I have a unique playing style; or they hear the influences of Steve Hackett, Dave Gilmour and Andy Latimer, all of whom inspire my compositions along with the musical concepts of Mike Oldfield, Genesis, Pink Floyd and Yes. I love a bit of modern jazz like Al Di Meola and Brand X, but for me it all starts with The Beatles.
