Cheers, Everyone!

I was born and raised in Germany and moved permanently to the U.S. in 1986. As a young guy (age 18) I've taught myself to play the guitar and soon expanded to other stringed instruments and the piano (well, keyboard!). I've been playing live gigs for years, then took a little break. Soon, I picked up composing and songwriting again. I've been around for music for over 30 years and it still remains one of my biggest passions in life.

Very nice blues. Love the way that it shifts from electric blues to a more acoustic feel and new chords. A very refreshing take on the genre!

I see we share a compassion for the 12-string guitar. This piece sure has some wonderfully recorded guitars. Nice chord progression too. I will have to check out more of your songs. Really great stuff so far smile :)

Quite a dramatic acoustic piece Mike - would be fantastic for a movie soundtrack. Love the diminished and minor chords - and a nice Country feel on the leads.

I would LOVE to be able to play like this. Fabulous sound and mood with the organ and rhythm section providing such fine backing. This guitar sings. I can't believe it's 6 minutes, it must've had me entranced.

Why this name?
It's got something to do with my name :)
Do you play live?
Not anymore. I consider myself a studio musician these days.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It's an opportunity to get your music heard by a broad audience without great expense of promoting yourself.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Undecided... Talk to me :)
Band History:
You've been marked on my visitor map!
Your influences?
Yanni, Jean Paul Jarre, Rippingtons, Kraftwerk (believe it or not), various Jazz, Rock, Blues and Classical artists.
Favorite spot?
Favorite spot would be with my music equipment (second to my wife, of course).
Equipment used:
Various Acoustic, Classical and Electrical guitars, a couple of keyboards, expensive music software, BOSS BR1600, BOSS GT-8 and a few other toys.
Anything else...?
I love music, I love life. And no matter what age you are, you are only as old as you feel - so, feel young all your life! - And don't forget: art is in the eye of the beholder! :o) I also DJ on Mixposure.com ... check it out some time.
