Artist Bio

Influences:   Early Genesis, Rush, King Crimson, ELP, Yes, Radiohead, U2, Muse

Other music I'm into but not so much influences: Steven Wilson, Haken

I am primarily a pianist, but have focused more on guitar and bass in recent years. I've played keyboards in a Genesis Tribute band and in an original prog rock band.

I went to school for sound recording technology, music composition, and piano performance.

I have been writing and recording my own material for, well, forever, but I only consider a small percentage of the work worthy enough to share. The rest I consider part of my ongoing education.

My work can be measured and mathematical, but not without emotion. Lately I seem to be heading back to my prog rock roots and I'm enjoying it.

    Hello, and thank you very much for the comments. To answer your question on "Dusk", I don't have much experience with writing music, but what I envision is something akin to elements found in Genesis' Trespass and, for certain ones to come, Rush's Caress of Steel.

    It's a home-made one (I layered my voice and looped the whole thing).
