Influences: I have MYRIAD influences, but instead of listing artists, I shall instead list genres: 60s psychedelia; early 70s prog rock and glam rock; metal; shoegaze; electronica; drum-n-bass; grunge; bossa nova; jazz (of the standard, avant and SOMETIMES fusion varieties); 80s new wave; ska and its offspring, reggae; folk; klezmer; bhangra...I could really go on.
A guy. A guitar. Some keyboards. A computer. A boatload of synthesizers, both hardware and software. Myriad genres. A vast vocabulary. Some noise.
You've been warned.
You are so welcome! I'll check out more soon too! If rock is your thing I have some that do...my style is all over the board so I try to tag appropriately. LOL Kind of a chameleon when it comes to writing/singing.
All of your work is astoundingly good. I would love to figure out a way to try a collaboration with you some time, if you would be the least bit interested. Give some of my tracks a listen, especially anything I tagged for my "1984" project; I'm all over the board stylistically too. I would be honored to produce something with you. I have a boatload of instruments, real and virtual, to work with, including a real honest-to-god acoustic piano (though strangely I did not end up using it this year in FAWM... at least not yet. Only a few hours to go until FAWM ends as I write this....).
Hit me up here or on soundcloud at www.soundcloud.com/royestel or www.soundcloud.com/electrictesla, if you so desire, to continue communication.
Whatever you decide, I am convinced you are a modern musical master. Continue doing what you do and touch the world in any way that you can. The world needs you.
Thank you so much! Glad it resonated with you.
Hey. I'd be up for another collab if "Be Dissatisfied" doesn't spark anything.
I know I've been quiet here. I've been busy with DJing gigs...but more WILL be on the way. Mark my words.
Cool. I don't have anything specific in mind, but if you have any ideas lemme know - if you have a beat or something that didn't go anywhere feel free to throw it my way and I'll do likewise. How's that for a half arsed plan ! 😉
That's very honest of you re the lyrical process! Personally I am all for taking credit when I don't deserve it 😉 I think we may be on a similar, if not the same, page musically so let me know if you'd be up for some kind of collaboration, no worries if not, I don't hold grudges!
Cool...you're in Worcester (which some people seem to think is western MA. In the Berkshires we tend to disagree).
Haha thank you so much for your comment on 'fruit' that was exactly what I was going for even though after a while of jamming it out I couldn't see the wood for the trees!!
Welcome! How did I miss that you were on board here? I'll be back to listen soon. Awesome that you are doing FAWM!
Excellent! I await in anticipation 😉 and thanks for the kind comment on 'stay' those are some big names to mention to me so much appreciated!!
I want more!!
