I'm a multi-instrumentalist and composer who likes many different styles of music from jazz to metal to urban to world music and it's reflected in my musical experiments. I'm always looking for people to work with. I also offer my services as a production music composer. If you want something that's sounds really great on a very short notice let me know! However, my specialty is making music videos and short films. So, if you need something multi-media for your next project, call me!
Why this name?
Mike Diana and Scott Crinklaw are responsible for my moniker.
Do you play live?
I have a very unconventional band, Bomb Squad. We play here in Springfield, Missouri.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
The artist doesn't need corporate media to rescue them from the plight of obscurity. You can now go directly to the ears of music fans.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Only limited. I change my focus and direction all too frequently.
I have worked with Richard Christy, Acheron, members of Burning Inside, and many others as well as having written and performed several songs that have been used during the launch of Howard Stern's "On demand" network.
My influences are widespread and many are rather obscure. Among my most influential artists are: Cocteau Twins, The Smiths, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, The Alan Parson's Project, Al DiMeola, Kate Bush, FSOL, Zebra, Rosewater Elizabeth, The Sundays, O.H.M./Chris Poland, Angelo Badalamenti and so many more.
I love Chicago. It's my favorate city. Then again I have a soft spot for the country. Then again, I loved Australia when I was there too.
I change up frequently, never mastering any one item, I usually just band around on it like an ape until I get the desired effect then move on to the next victim.
I joined the MFAS (MissouriFilm.org - Missouri Film Association, Springfield Chapter) and am now having a great time using all my varied skills on numerous movie, film and tv projects.
