This is just a quick, little warm-up riff that I like to play when I first sit down with a guitar.

I am a multi-instrumentalist whose instruments include guitar (acoustic and electric), bass, piano/synths and mandolin. Usually my drums are programmed by me, unless I post tracks where I've played with a real drummer.
Why this name?
My band name? You can credit my parents with that.
Do you play live?
I'm currently not playing live. My main focus at the moment is to get my latest CD recorded, mixed and mastered for distribution. Once that is done, I will focus on playing out and touring to support it.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
The internet levels the playing field somewhat as far as exposure for independent artists. There are so many people with internet connections available to them that it's a very viable way to get your music out to the people all around the world.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
A major label contract? I've got a pen if they've got a contract?

Seriously though, I'm sure many musicians would love to sign a deal, (including myself), but my main focus is to get work doing soundtracks and scores for television and film. In the process, if a major label were to hear me and want to sign me, that would be a huge bonus.
Band History:
My first instrument was guitar, which I started 24 years ago. Since then, I've spent most of my time in my home studio, writing and recording. I've spent a lot of time jamming around town but up until now, I haven't done any serious gigging. The studio is really my thing.
Your influences?
Because I play various instruments, I draw my influences from a variety of sources. When you're looking to improve your abilities, it's always best to draw from as many sources as you can. It helps you become a well rounded musician.
