Musician and songwriter raised in a family of musicians. Self taught on all instruments starting with drums as a child while picking up additional instruments through high school. Play all instruments by ear. Learned recording and producing through hands on experience. Gained recording and performing experience while playing with a couple of bands which also allowed for songwriting growth. Started writing, recording, and producing all my own music under the moniker Traumatone in 2003 continuing to present day. I have released 2 EP's, 4 full length albums, and 1 single over that time period. Traumatone experienced a brief period of live performance in 2006-2007 before disbanding. Would love to bring Traumatone back to the stage and/or work with other musicians for the enjoyment of live performance and/or songwriting.
I was born into a musical family and was raised with it. I feel music in my bones. It creates a deep connection within me between emotion and sound.
I would love to be able to create and play music for a living. No need to be famous. Just to do what I love for a living. Like many other countless other musicians.
I have tons of songs from my childhood that bring certain memories. But it was a particular Van Halen song that had background vocals in a partiular harmony and melody where I first felt an emotional connection to a melodic pattern. It made me feel something it was so beautiful and I remember listening to that part over and over.
I listen to so many bands and styles it would be hard to narrow it down, but I'd say the top of the mountain belongs to both Muse and Rammstein, with an honorable mention to Deftones just because their catalogue has some holes for me.
Find the truth in preparation for eternity
Excitement and nervousness simultaneously.
I heard a keynote speech by Stewart Copeland once where he talked about the easy availability of home recording and how it's great because anybody can record music. But the problem is... anybody can record music. And how can you stick out in such a crowded field? Good question. What could improve? Better filters for quality, haha.
Drooble is a great community of support amongst independent musicians!
That fantastic musicians and songwriters will go unknown and unrecognized.
Family life keeps me from going out to local shows these days, so I don't have a good handle on the local scene although I would like to.
Admittedly not very knowledgable in the independent scene. Sorry.
