Songs that serve up witty and insightful lyrics in a musical broth that has flavors of alt-pop, folk, Americana, and jazz.
Do you play live?
Performing live in the greater Portland, ME area.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Personally it got me involved in music again after a nearly 10-year hiatus. Because the barriers to just getting things out there for feed back became much lower.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Probably not a major label.
Band History:
I started writing songs when I was about eight, which my mother would dutifully transcribe in order to get me to go to sleep! Since then variety has been the spice of my musical life: I played in high school rock bands, got interested in jazz and classical music, studied both in college, got a very "useful" Master's degree in music composition, played in the NYC improv/electronic scene in the early 90s, formed a virtual band—Dogs Gone Fishing—on MP3.com, turned it into a non-virtual duo that performed around the Long Island, NY area, moved to Maine, now performing in the Portland area as a solo singer/songwriter.
Your influences?
Geez - just about everything... Jim Hall jazz guitar sound meets Radiohead alienation through a John Gorka new folk filter while caught listening to Exile on Main Street, getting drunk with Tom Waits and Wilco and dreaming about Lucinda Williams and Joni Mitchell dancing to P Funk.
