I've been writing music on and off for many years whenever I have time and the inspiration strikes. I write, record, edit, mix, and master everything myself. Currently I'm putting the finishing touches on eleven songs I wrote in the last six months. A lot of my tracks end up being instrumentals but I'm always looking for people to collaborate with...
It gives me a way to get away from everything. When I'm working in the studio I'm focused on one thing, and nothing else matters.
To get my music placed in a movie, TV show, or video game.
Living harmoniously with the Earth.
So hard to pick just one... I was heavy into Pantera, Metallica, Megadeth, and Iron Maiden when I was growing up. Pantera - Cowboys From Hell.
Pantera, Talking Heads, Frank Zappa, The Streets, The Doors,
The creative process. Getting lost in the many aspects of writing, recording, editing, mixing, and mastering music.
Music needs more creativity.
I don't perform. Strictly a studio musician.
Most musicians nowadays make most of their money through live shows; which is a good thing, but something I've never aspired to do. I just love writing music.
So far, so good... so what? (Megadeth)
Getting the right people to hear my music.
If I had money to, I certainly would.
The Streets, Richard Cheese, Frank Zappa (I know you've heard of him, but have you really listened? It's brilliant)
