My immediate musical influences are bands like Thirty Seconds to Mars, Filter, Queensryche, Angels & Airwaves, I Mother Earth, Fall Out Boy. Fans of some of these, and other like them, will probably find something they like here. It’s heavy, hard rock, alt rock, and some electronic flavors mixed in for good measure.
Deeper influences include Rush, Yes, Sting, Duran Duran, and a handful of 80s hair bands I grew up listening to like Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Dokken, Ratt, and Motley Crue. I wouldn’t say my music sounds like any of these, but hints of my musical history can be noticed throughout some of my songs.
Right now, I only have some Garageband demos here and on the web site. The debut album is in production right now, slated for an early Spring 2014 release. The first single, “Be a Rock Star” will be released in early March 2014.
My debut album isn’t really a concept album, but the songs here were all written and designed to take the listener on a journey up and down the emotional scale. Each one explores some of the different aspects of life that we all deal with everyday: feelings of unworthiness, second guessing yourself, looking for love, finding love, finding your passion, tapping into your core genius and living life to the fullest. Simple stuff like that.
