Original, contemporary, peculiar, energetic, Christian, comical
My "band" consists of me, a microphone, a pop screen, a keyboard and computer with Garage Band software. I write and record original, contemporary Christian music with a sense of humor. To describe the music in a secular sense, it would have to be "Zappa meets Weird Al meets Talking Heads meets Devo meets God." But don't let that scare you: much of the music is serious and all of it lifts up the Name that's above all Names!
Band/artist history
What you hear is what you get...I started writing music again last December ('07) because I felt the Lord nudging me to do so.
Have you performed in front of an audience?
Only when I record. I love playing when I record. My special moment, when I record, is when I realize I got it right.
Your musical influences
CHRISTIAN: NEWSBOYS; SECULAR: FRANK ZAPPA, JETHRO TULL, TALKING HEADS
What equipment do you use?
I use a Yamaha PSR-550 as a MIDI controller; I use a M-AUDIO phantom-powered microphone with a pop screen, and record everything into a IMac computer using Garage Band software. (I'm about to graduate to Logic Studio.)
Anything else?
God is good! If you have a talent, don't bury it like I did. And if you have, as long as you're breathing you can still dig it up, wipe it off and create something that honors God. He has a plan for you--even now. I'm on the old side of young and am determined to multiply the talent God gave me so that I can stand before Him and not here the words "You wicked, lazy servant!" Instead, I want to hear, "Well done, good and faithful servant!"
