How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It hasn't changed a thing the way old-school record companies or mass media music hubs operate except to create new mass-marketing avanues and revenue channels for the big labels while smaller labels still do things on the cheap in obscurity for the most part just as in any other mass communication media or else we'd all be searchable via MTV.com or VH1.com.

The internet is still ran by money just like everything else and the day that interrnet bandwidth/mass storage became a commodity item with hosting services is the day that killed alot of options for the small guys.

The only thing that is timeless is that great music markets itself no matter how big or small someone is in the business. It's not always business for guys like myself. I make plenty of money in other ventures and do this for fun now.

The only difference is in accessibility now. It used to be that you heard a great song on the radio and were tethered to having to go to the music store to hunt down the artists. Today you google them and download in minutes. Everyone from big to small does things through the exact same http://blah blah:port80 and small bands can broadcast their same crap to the same people that don't seem to care.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
I am a major label. The competition just doesn't realize it yet.
Your influences?
Influences range from The Eagles to Tool, The Cars, Duran Duran, Type O Negative, Metallica, Killswitch Engage, Soilwork, Deftones, Veruca Salt, Ween, Smashing Pumpkins, White Zombie, Lynrd Skynrd, Alice in Chains, Screaming Trees, Tabula Rasa, The Nixons, Cooper Vane, Hank Williams Sr., Johnny Cash, Bob Marley and the Wailers, StompBox, Helmet, Count Basie Orchestra, Stray Cats, Reverand Horton Heat blah blah blah...the list could go on forever... I am into more heavier and serious elements of rock music, however.
Favorite spot?
Right now- Portland Oregon
Equipment used:
I use a AM Turion64X2 based laptop running FA Soft's N-track Studio utilizing DbAudioware and Aboretum Systems Hyperprism DirectX mastering plugins. All preamp inputs have now been upgraded to 24k/4800 dual Presonus Firepod for a grand total of 16 mult-tracks.

Most of the earlier stuff on the music page was produced with a P3 based system running far less quality inputs, mics and preamps than I have now and am capable of producing....so alot of stuff as of right now is not representative of the present.


I also utilize various instruments ranging from a 1963 Fender Jazz Bass, Fender Stratocaster and Ludwig Drums. I recently added a Line6 POD 2.0 to my toy collection, so keep an ear out for some rip-roaring guitar stuff.
Anything else...?
I jam alot and have a few musician collegues I jam with. Some of their stuff I included up here although I may not have necessarily written the song while producing, I credited them all exlusively with the music writing in the song credits/info.

I also tried to include production notes when I could in the song info notes so click on that stuff. I did take the time to write. Do read it.

I am an experienced studio/live musician of 20+ years and if this material really strikes anyone else's rotten core like it has mine, please let me know or leave a message on my board.


I love to hear from and meet new people and musicians all the time.
