Why this name?
Picked it randomly from the phone book.
Do you play live?
Nope. I mostly play dead.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
The interwebby thingo has made it easy to pirate my rubbish. Tchyuh!
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Surely you jest.
I and my twin sister Stephanie Polek grew up in Texas and Scotland -- true! We got into creating music on traditional instruments, moved on to creating digitally on the computer as well. My Celtic music is often based around original compositions by Stephanie. She lives in New York and I live in California. If she weren't such a lazy ass, we'd do more cross-country collabs. Heh.
Celtic traditional like Clannad, Celtic rock like Runrig, world & classical rock like Vanessa-Mae. Silly stuff like Weird Al Yankovic & Ray Stevens.
There's one on my bum I'm rather fond of. I call it Nigel. (sorry)
Digital Orchestrator Pro and SoundFonts backed up by traditional instruments for arrangement, MusicMatch to convert to MP3 format, Windows XP to bugger the lot.
Thank God for Photoshop. (Trivia: count the cliches in my photo! Brick wall, half face, Eye Of Intensity, etc...)
