Songs and instrumentals
Been involved in music for over 20 years. Since 2006 I've produced 5 album projects.
Also 1 from 1995. From 1995-2005 I was keyboardist in the Long Island band UNIFIED PAST.
I am currently in very early stages of a new recording project. I'm hoping to have it completed by 2020.
Yes. Mostly open mic spots because I enjoy playing original music.
Lately I've been more into streaming LIVE on You Tube. My YouTube link is right here
which you can copy and paste to check out past LIVE You Tube performances
RUSH is and always will be my top favorite band ever.
After them there is just so many. I love Dream Theater a lot! Over the years Smashing Pumpkins, Chevelle, Foo Fighters, Tool, Radiohead, Killers bands like that I've always enjoyed. Lately I've really been into things like Meshuggah, Korn, Slipnot, Mastodon, Russian Circles, Animals As Leaders, Tides From Nebula,
Those are the artists which inspire me the most. But I listen to all kinds of other rock and non rock artists as well. When I like to mellow out Ambient music is great! Love old school jazz from time to time as well as blues. But the harder heavier stuff grabs me most
I've had a Paul Reed Smith for decades. Fender Tele Deluxe
My most recent guitars are an Ibanez 7 string, Jackson Dinky 7
Schecter Omen 8. Plus a Mitchell Exotic Wood Acoustic
Peavy Vypyr /Sampera 2, Couple of Vox Modeling Amps
Kork Micro Korg, Korg Micro Key which includes Wavestation, M1 and a bunch of other synths,
I record using Cakewalk/Sonar and various plug ins. Audacity as well for editing and stuff
My music is homemade and home grown. It's definitely rough around the edges. I admit that. But it is REAL. Creating my music is a labor of love. It's a joy to make and always a challenge.
I'm learning as I go along. Trying different things. It's a lot of fun. I do the best I can but also
make sure I have fun and just go for it! I'm not into music for fame or big money. Its just something I love doing.
