On the one hand, this is a platform to showcase what I do, but more importantly, it's a laboratory to see for myself what I can do. I've been kind of on a mission to try something completely different with each new tune.
I read someone's bio once and he said, "The best way to know me is through my music". He said I could use it and I do so only in the sense that I believe it's true of every musician (and artist for that matter).
I love the SoundCloud community. It's so awesome to hear music from folks all over the world and actually be able to have a dialogue with them about music. I've even had the chance to collaborate with other musicians from around the globe, something I'm always interested in. The support I receive on SoundCloud has been invaluable in boosting my confidence and has pushed me to do and try things I never would have considered before. My Musical tastes are very diverse, so this is very much like heaven to me.
I'm a long time, self taught (with alot of help from my friends) musician; my main instrument is guitar, although I like to experiment with everything I can; most recently I've been learning piano and finally getting around to learning how to read music. My latest interest, which I have found I have a real passion for, is music production; mostly for the purpose of making and sharing my own musical ideas, which with todays technology has become very accessable to anyone for a fairly minimal investment.
It's a very exciting time to be involved in music!.
P.S. Many people follow me that have never listened to my music. Don't get me wrong, I have no expectation for anyone to "have" to listen to my music. I just don't feel a SoundCloud connection with those that don't and when I hit that follow button, I'm making an effort to make a connection. That doesn't mean I never follow anyone who hasn't listened to my tunes; if I run across some music and am truly moved by it, I often do. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to listen to it all, although I do spend much time exploring music on SoundCloud - it's actually one of my favorite things to do. Anyway, I just didn't want anyone to think I'm mean for not following back and felt the need to explain myself.
