I just like good music performed by people who love what they are doing. Artistry still counts, no matter how much technology is involved, the song has to shine through. I don't hem myself in with a particular style. I try to write what I hear...turns out I hear mostly guitar based pop-rock...;) ...but that's OK. One of the best complements I've recieved from listeners is that all my songs are pretty distinct.
