Distortion Method was started back in 1996 (but with a different name) by a group of guys with similar tastes in music. During the first four years the band went through several different names until it finally landed on Distortion Method referring to the unique method for creating the distortion when recording the guitars. which were usually recorded clean and effects were added afterwards. During those same four years several band members came and went until finally only one remained. Me. Since about summer of 2000 Distortion Method has been my own personal project for me to make the kind of music I like and want to hear.
I've been in a few different bands. Distortion Method was supposed to be the first band I was starting but as I was trying to start it I was messing around in other bands. About seven years later I had gotten good enough to take on DM on my own.... since I couldn't find anyone else for the band.
I don't play live because it's just me.... I can record everything, but I can't play it all at the same time....
Papa Roach is the reason I started playing guitar and how I got into music. I was highly influenced by Linkin Park, Korn, Avenged Sevenfold, Slipknot, July For Kings and many others. After a while I moved on to more complex music and became re-inspired by The Faint, Bright Eyes, Death Cab For Cutie, Fall Out Boy. Recently I've become very interested in Electronic music and just trying to do something different. Things truly stand out when you can't seem to explain them.
