Multi-genre multi-instrumentalist. Recording artist. Audio engineer. Current projects: Sleep Siren, Dark Stars, and Jakob's Echo. Current live band: The Clouds Are Ghosts.
Music is the ultimate escape. It transcends language by speaking something the soul can hear.
I'd love to retire as an audio engineer. Helping young bands bring their dreams to life. I'd love to continue submitting music for film, games, and television.
Humanity's need to wait until the last moment to advert crisis.
Pink Floyd's "High Hopes"
Jon Gomm, Leprous, Porcupine Tree, The Dear Hunter, Pink Floyd, A Perfect Circle, Radiohead, Tool, Massive Attack, Haken, Animals As Leaders, Devin Townsend, Silversun Pickups. Manchester Orchestra.... to name a few.
Experiences, emotions, the desire to inspire others to feel what music makes me feel.
With music, we are never alone. Someone, somewhere out there, as told a story we all have felt.
Electrified. There's nothing better than performing in front of a crowd of people who appreciate what you do.
The reality for musicians is that it's a dying industry dictated by people who will market you only if it sells their "idea" of what people should be listening to. Artists deserve a fighting chance to make a good living doing what they love.
So far... so good.
Giving away my music for free to people who don't take the time to listen.
I support my local scene by attending shows, buying merch, and inviting other bands to join us on the stage.
Musicians, on top of being performers, also have to be sales people. You have to be willing to take risks and market yourself well.
