Performing Arts: Music, Vocal
My music is as varied as my influences. I write music for guitar duets, solo fingerstyle guitar, string quintents, and my favorite, the power trio. When I perform I like to cover all these different line ups in movements that vary from show to show so everyone gets bang for their buck. As far as musical genre goes…. I don’t really have one, nor do I want to fit into one. The idea of being pigeonholed into one style of music is to me is a very one dimensional process. So when you come to my shows, you hear it all within the different arrangements I compose for. Classical music, blues, rock, metal, hip-hop, progg, experimental. Happy music, sad music, and more importantly original music. I also have 0 intention of writing music that’s supposed to appeal to just one age group or group of people. The more of my music you listen to, the more you’ll get to know me.
