Influences: Tool, Pink Floyd, Pearl Jam, Iron and Wine... and just about everything in between.
Behavior Health director by day, amateur musician in my free time (when I'm not playing The Binding of Isaac or chowing down on some chicken wings) on the outskirts of Pittsburgh in a defunct little industrial town.
I've always loved singing and writing lyrics and have done some solo recordings and songs I cowrote with a pal on occasion... over the years I have been putting together a meager home studio situation.
I have a cursory understanding of my midi keyboard and have been screwing around in Ableton for years - some of my solo work and collab projects can be found on my YouTube page linked above - and I've also slowly been making progress on guitar, but I've got a long way to go.
Look forward to seeing what this month brings, and always appreciate feedback - also, open to any and all kinds of collaboration if you'd like a lyricist / vocalist / co-conspirator of some other sort.

Thanks fr your comment on "Angel of the Wind". It was my most experimental piece for FAWM. I was well outside my comfort zone. So it's great to hear someone say how much they liked it. Have a good year and hopefully we'll meet again next FAWM.
Thanks a lot for your comment on "Angel in Jeans". Honestly, I don't think about chord progressions. I just do them xD This song will receive some vocals in some weeks. So post-site-closing.
Thanks for the comment. It was a fun lofi experiment. I do like Modest Mouse so it certainly may be an influence. I used to love digging through bargain bins to find weird fun (and occasionally exceptional) albums.
Thanks for the comment on my paintcard challenge song!
Your correct.! I indeed used the buzz slide noise in a song to talk about buzz slide noise, YOU GOT ME THERE....guilty😜
Yeah Let's do it! Awesome if you have the time 😀 Let me know if you need anything
Thanks for busting that last Zong 😀) It's a strange one but I like. I would be curious to hear that vocal you're hearing 😉
Thank you so much for your lovely comments on Passage of Time. It means a lot to us..:)
You're too kind sir 😀 I love all 3 of those things the series, the soundtrack and the artist
Congratulations 🥳 on your win and thanks for dropping in on ‘Static and Interference’ and your kind comment. I appreciate it!
Thanks for the comment about top moment being hearing instrumentation.. the moment I saw your lyrics I was inspired.. Good experience all round!!
Hope you like what I did with it!
Thanks man! There is still something off with the synth in the little sequence that runs underneath but I can't put my finger on it atm.. Congrats on hitting 14!
Hahhh, thank you. I appreciate that.
- Outlaw lyrics, so, you actually read them too 😀 - yeah, gotta luv the old west and sideways humor.
Hello Chris, thank you so much for your beautiful and very moving comment on my skirmish piece. I'll be delighted to collaborate with you on this piece. I'll email you. Thank you so much.
Thanks very much for your kind words on "No Man's Land" I'm tickled hat you're still in possession of your lunch!
Thanks for your comment on I'm Nobody - I didn't know of King Buzzo, but I gave a listen and guess what? I like it!
Thanks so much for your comments, i really appreciate it. I love Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks is an idol of mine so i will take any comparisons to that any day of the week !!
Looking forward greatly to hearing my music of your song "Mountain" our random collab.. in its new form with your lyric sung by yourself (and mixed better than my rubbish version). So excited!!! I was really pleased with how the song came out.
Wow, thank you for your kind message! Definitely feel free to share it with the one you had in mind, my main reason of writing these lyrics is to make others feel validated or bring awareness.
Hi Chris, I've sent you my reply 😀
You are very welcome, I love your song. It is truly special. Thank you so much for your kind words about my music, especially pieces I created some years back, means so much to me. I occasionally play Or is it and very rarely Enchanted Lake. I absolutely love the movie "The Enchanted" and it was time I was calling a few of my compositions using this word. Looking forward to hearing more of your songs. Thank you again for your kind support.
Dublin used to be even more charming, I preferred it when it was poor rather than rich.
Enjoying working with your song!! I've roughed it out. Will try to do a more polished version than normal!!
I thought my email was there but you can have it here: firstname.lastname@example.org, or whatsapp me 00447986799205 (maybe delete this after)
Hey there.. Looking forward to our collab.. Email is fine. (But will you let me know when it's been sent? ) I imagined lyrics firs, but if you want some piano riffs or ideas to play around with that'd be fine too..
Got your email thanks. I’ll respond shortly.
Hey - I have a backing track together that might be of interest if your still up for a collab. Got an email I could send it to?
Hey, let me know if you want to collab. This week is a bit manic, however if you send me some lyrics I can spend a bit more quality time on them. You’ll sing on anything we do??? Would be better than my singing.
Just let me know what suits you.
Thanks for the great comment on Apex!
See You In The Shadows…
Welcome! I really enjoyed Death's head. Watchlisted!
See You In The Shadows…
Hey - give me a shout if you di want to collab, I'll just be doing instrumentals for the most part this year and I'm aiming to do a few heavier numbers that might suit your interests!
Welcome, and happy FAWMing!
