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.

Thank you for the gracious comments on my tune, David Gray is one of my inspirations so it’s an honor that you mentioned is influencing my vocals. Checking out your stuff now!
Ask and you shall receive! Yeah, been stuck on that one for a bit. It's gonna be a frantic second half. I'll be back.
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.
Thanks for the comment! Beautiful playing here.
Hi and welcome to FAWM. Lots of company here for production oriented people.
Happy to see you back! Thank you so much for your kind comments. 😀
"Where did you find the Mongolian choir in the beginning and end?"
It's a home-made one (I layered my voice and looped the whole thing).
