Need a gift for a gifted musician?
I'm a designer of sound. That may sound a bit pretentious, but it comes from a place of pure love.
My birth certificate states I was born in Brooklyn, NY on February 3, 1987. I believe I fell from the sky, blasted through the cosmos from some distant world in search of a better existence. While our stories share some similarities, unlike Kal-El, I possess no "super" power but an affinity for sound. I now reside in New Jersey with big city (Philadelphia, to be exact) aspirations.
My introduction to music began with the piano, progressed to the violin, back to the piano in college, and finally to the guitar. Due to financial restrictions, and the fact I have no super strength to carry a piano everywhere, I grew more proficient with the guitar. I began producing music in 2004 as writing, my first true love, restricted me from expressing my most honest, intangible emotions. Where words fail, music enhances. As my addiction to sound became more dominant, it began to alter my very belief system, down to my religious affiliation. While I continue to hold onto many of my Christian ideals, I believe music is our direct connection to the Heavens. Therefore, Christianity became an unfit description of my theological opinion. Music is my religion...It's not blasphemy if God told me so.
