It's a long story but I can highlight some of the relevant things. I started playing instruments, writing and recording music because I wanted to be a part of the music I enjoyed listening to. At a very early age, around 10 or so, I heard Peter Gabriel for the first time. Solsbury Hill was blasting on my brother's stereo as I listened while playing outside. I was amazed by the sound, voice and melody.
I grew to love and follow bands like Genesis, Pink Floyd, Talk Talk, Supertramp, Rush, Yes, John Lennon and of course, The Beatles among others. I like music that sounds good no matter where it comes from.
Starting off with playing drums, things evolved over time to piano, synth and voice. I never have considered myself a vocalist but record voice when needed simply because someone has to. And since I'm always up all night, I just do it.
I write all of my music but have been fortunate enough to have some very gifted musicians perform on tracks. You will also be lucky to hear these people perform. They are extremely talented musicians and charismatic people.
Long story short. I've done quite a bit. Have had it both very hard and easy at times. Had many jobs, currently own and run an IT company, have a woman I don't deserve that has given me two of the best little boy's in the universe, the first who I named Lennon and the second who I tried to name Gabriel or Harrison but lost that battle. She named him Logan. Something to do with a super hero she liked. I got it when the movie came out. But through all of this, one thing has remained constant. Writing music.
I have written a lot over the years. Somehow, sooner or later, I end up in the studio recording. I really don't know what the fuck I would do without that in my life. Bowling? Model planes? Collecting stamps? ... Not a chance.
