Biography

What made you want to start making music?

I was inspired to make music by my many musical idols, such as Ben Folds and They Might Be Giants. Hearing the music come through the headphones made me want to create my own, see my own name on the iPod, have my own album covers and fans.

Tell us what your music is about? How has your subject matter evolved?

I make happy music. I always have. Playing with other artists, I found that playing the intense songs, the sad songs, while beautiful in their own way, didn't resonate as much as the happy ones. So my songs are inspired by love, laughs, friends, and anything else that draws a smile.

What artist(s) would you like to collaborate with? And why?

If I could collaborate with anyone, it would have to be Ben Folds. As an improviser, multi-instrumentalist, and lyricist, the man is unmatched.

What has been your biggest challenge as an artist/band? Have you been able to overcome that challenge? If so, how?

My biggest challenge has been getting my music noticed. In the Internet age, it's very easy to get your music out there, but getting people to take notice is something else entirely. I haven't overcome this challenge yet, but I'm optimistic.

What do you hope to accomplish with your music? How do you envision that happening?

The only thing I hope to accomplish is to make someone's day just a little bit better. If they hear one of my songs and think, "Hey, my life's not so bad," then I've done all I ever wanted to do.

The Sun is Rising (partial album)

An experimental album of short songs that I improvised during the recording of my next EP "Is Ok". Mostly a foray into electronic music, with some more traditional, yet still synthesized, pop songs on it as well. The album is free, and it is possible that there will be another one as I continue to record the EP.

Dug the raw sound and the guitar felt like it had purpose, a feeling to share or a story to tell. I liked how it developed (kept the general melody and feel, but built it up with little changes) and I could see myself listening to this again.

the song spoke to me, i love pop and the first time i listened to it, i felt like, like getting up and doing something.. going to work...
