What is the Alternative scene like in Portland, Oregon?
We have a great music scene in Portland. Many talented, and producing musicians.
Where did you record this album?
Portland, Oregon at the studio of my producer Rob Daiker.
Brian Gardner mastered the album, how did the two of you meet?
I researched based on a couple of records who did the mastering.
Brian Came up for one, then seeing the work he had done, it was a easy decision. I wanted Big bass... That is what he does. Big Bass Brian !
Your music is very deep, what is your songwriting process like?
I start with a groove. Then a theme, the rest just falls into place.. or not.
I write from my heart. Therefore my song writing has no process, just inspiration.
Have you been performing live lately?
I took a break for many years. This Record has inspired me to do so. I plan on beginning a tour early spring 2014.
Your music is a big melting pot of many genres in my opinion, how would you describe your style?
Accidental. I am influenced by a vast variety of music over decades. I am eclectic. I like to write with no attachment to Style. It is all about the communication, that influences the flavor of the music.
Do you write for other artists?
I would love to, but as of yet. No
What can we expect from you in the near future?
I am looking forward to touring and continuing to release new tracks. I am excited to make supporting Videos. Releasing an independent Record is challenging and incredible, interesting and fun. This work provides a limitless creative pallet.
