Why this name?
I didn't. Everytime I'd name my band some other band would appear with the same name so I figured I may as well go with the honest approach.
Do you play live?
I'm a Vancouverite and I'm a well known performer in the Main St. area. I've also performed many times on local radio and television.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
It's cool to be able to upload my originals and have them available for whomever to listen to whenever they like. It's also scary to think that people will never want to go back to paying for music ever again.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
If it was a good contract that enabled me to create more and better quality recordings without me having to foot the bill, yes.
Band History:
I've been writing and performing music all my life and have developed what I think is a unique melodic style. Still waiting for the big break, you know the rest...
Your influences?
I like anything that's artistic and different from the norm. My all time favourite bands include; Harry Nilsson, Pink Floyd, Beatles, Uriah Heep, Black Sabbath, Manfred Mann's Earth Band, 10 cc, King Crimson, Alan Parsons, Al Stewart, Albert Hammond, Gilbert O'Sullivan, Dead Can Dance, ELO, ELP, Bread, Genesis, Four Seasons, Joe Walsh, Eagles, Innocence Mission, Badly Drawn Boy, Damien Rice, Yes, Kraftwerk, Lindisfarne, Macy Gray, Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Melanie, Undisputed Truth, Nick Drake, Randy Newman, Radiohead, Queen, Simon & Garfunkel, Styx, Stevie Wonder, Supertramp, Ten Years After, Thorns, Utopia... the list can go on forever.
Favorite spot?
Minnekhada Park in Coquitlam, B.C. I spent a lot of my childhood roaming around the forest there. The Alberta Badlands have also formed a significant part of my natural experience. To better appreciate a rain forest one must first experience a dry and dusty desert.
Equipment used:
Washburn Festival Acoustic Guitar, Cakewalk Sonar 6, Native Instruments soft synths, Ohmforce plug-ins, Waves, Wavelab, Soundforge, Nuendo.
Anything else...?
If you know of a good mp3 site that allows better artistic control of web page appearance. Or at least looks cooler than this one please let me know.
