Hi. I've been moonlighting as Axis 1 at many diferent places to include Ampcast and MP3. It is a band that includes many different players from across the US as well as around the globe. A purely digital fantasy band. The fact remains that I am the driving force behind this concept digital band. It is as Gary Nielsen that most of the material is played live. I'm a singer/songwriter who mostly plays live electric and acoustic shows solo.
Yes, I play at open mikes, perform for the staff and patients at my place of employ and for anyone who is willing to listen.
I've always like a number of different rock and roll singers and bands. Believe it or not, I first started listening to country music as a kid. I remember hearing Johnny Cash while riding in the back of my dad's car and singing along. As I grew and pop told me, I bought you an FM radio stop listening to AM and use it. So I did and discovered rock and roll. The Beatles were the first group that caught my attention. The story evolves, but to keep it short I draw from such bands as The Who, Pink Floyd, solo acts like Peter Gabriel, Neil Young, and almost anyone you could name. THe list is long....
