ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
As a songwriter I am balancing on the shoulders of giants like Iggy Pop, John Cale, Bob Dylan, Ray Davies, Jeff Beck and Johnny Cash. I don't know where their studied influence ends and my stab at it begins. Somewhere in 1977 I believe.

Having studied musical theory, piano, guitar and drums I had a good grounding in song structure and production. With the purchase of cheap recording equipment I got into making music as seriously as I could, early on. I was deeply influenced by the rock opera and Music for Airports, so by way of soundtracks I expanded from writing and recording only music to developing film ideas, videos and other publishing projects. A limited budget required unlimited imagination so I started my own media technology company. By 2000 I had a corner office at the top of the tech. bubble and we all know what happened to that! After a rest and reboot, I found myself deep into web radio and a new red guitar. Then came the beginnings of this record.

Shortly after establishing 'indie-unsigned web radio' an idea clicked with me: I was listening to more great songs collecting and playing independent and 'unknown' artists than I would ever get to hear on commercial radio; I had found my tribe. DIY producers, songwriters, and musicians. Since then, I built a music studio and further developed the songs I was hearing. Oddly Enough.

"You have a punkish/60s/psychedelic edge to your sound.... your music has a cool gritty vibe that works well with the lyrics that you write. Your vocal delivery is original and has a real raw kind of feel that fits your songs well....Nice electric guitar textures.... you've got a gift for writing very poetic, associative lyrics....Unique verse lyrics that are evocative and poetic. I can hear the Kinks influence in your verse melody! This has a great, convincing retro sound....you have a great aesthetic about your music."
