I'm a solo artist in which all songs are written, composed, arranged, produced, mixed, by myself and perform all lead & rythym guitars, bass guitar tracks, lead and background vocals tracks. The drum tracks are courtesy of (Todd Sorensen) from DOD (Drums On Demand) and Frank Basile from (SL) Smart Loops. Although, I did write the drum track arrangements for my songs. I'm kind of a one man band so to speak which makes its much more work to do everything myself, but it's a lot of fun and I enjoy doing it!
I'm a solo artist and write various generes of music from rock, blues, progressive rock, acoustic rock, jazz/fusion, pop rock and a little country/rock thrown in the mix.
I have been playing music for many years and with various cover bands over the years, but currently an original solo artist writing and recording my own music.
I've been playing at a local club where a friend host an open jam every Sunday night. I enjoying jamming with "The Amigo's"which they call themselves just for the jam, but they all play in different bands. Also, I frequent local open jams in my area hosted by some of my muscians friends. Yes, I enjoy performing live, but don't get to as often as I would like because I don't cureently have a band.
I have a wide variety of influences from my early days of blues rock like Humble Pie, Aerosmith, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd and most of the bands from the 60's, 70's & 80's to artist like Eric Johnson, Stevie Ray Vaughn and many others.
I use a Fender Roadhouse Strat, PRS Santana Se, 1979 Takamine acoustic, Fender Squire (Standard Series) Precision Bass, Ibanez Bass for recording. My studio equipment consists of Sonar 7 Studio Edition, Line 6 Toneport UX2. I also used a Korg Pandora guitar effects processor used on the four songs on "Universe" that were recorded in 2002. I currently use a Marshall JCM2000 through a Marshall 4x12 cabinet loaded with 25 watt Celestion greenbacks with various effects pedals, (MXR Classic Overdrive, Dunlop Crybaby Wah, T.C. Electronics Flashbacl Delay, T.C. Electronics Corona Chorus, 1982 Boss Flanger, Boss Digital Delay/Reverb).
I'm new at sound engineering and still learning how to use this software, it's the best I can do for now without spending a lot of money paying a professional sound engineer to mix and master my songs and albums. So enjoy the music!!!!! I would like to thank everyone who took the time to visit my site and check out the music. I hope you will enjoy listening to them for awhile and maybe years to come as part of your music collection.
