I have been playing music under monikers and in bands for the better part of the last twenty years, and had my fair share of vague, disconnected bios and press kits hyping up interest in listening to tracks to drum up business in the industry. I am by no means being overly cynical, but I wanted something to feel a bit more real. As I have been a little quiet over the last couple of years letting life regenerate the love of making music without pressure, I feel that a chapter that I am ready to exert effort into is a debut solo album. It is with this that I have found myself experiencing a wave of direction with music, such as the cycle of creativity goes. I could probably add more descriptive language to the music, my own tasting notes to guide prospective listeners; however, limitations of language and interpretation of music, such personally subjective aspects, could easily result in the attempt being trite. I don't know, perhaps this is already trite? In any case, it feels honest to me, and perhaps you may discover some sounds that you like if you decide to listen.
