Why this name?
I'm trying to keep my personal and professional net-presence separate. I've worked in the space and satellite business here in Washington DC for years but sometime I still feel like the proverbial dog watching TV.
Do you play live?
I have played live in various places over the years but I don't do it often. I used to play in a folk/rock band playing rhythm guitar and singing way back when. I've played piano and sung in restaurants, hotels and lounges in New York, Las Vegas, Colorado, Maryland, Germany, and Korea. I played guitar and organ at weddings but mainly, I just like to play for friends and family.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
All I can say is that without this technology hardly anyone would hear my music.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Be serious! This is just a hobby.
Your influences?
I'm a child of the 1960's so you can imagine how growing up with the Beatles, Rolling Stones, and all the great rock & roll bands had a great impact on me. Later influences include the pop and soft folk rock of the 70s including John Denver, Elton John, Billy Joel, The Moody Blues, etc. I've come to love the Big Band / Swing era recording artists and vocalists. I also love classical music (but not opera) particularly the Classical and Romantic periods. I admire virtuosity in musical performance in any genre.
Equipment used:
I play a circa-1910 Beckwith Upright Piano (see it in the photo). For recording, I have a Casio Privia px-350 for midi recording and one Shure SM58 for vocals I use a Zoom H4N for audio instruments and interfacing to my computer. I use PGMusic Band-in-a-Box software for arranging and RealBand for mixing.
When performing, I'll play any keyboard on hand and hope for the best.
