John Williams, the Cleveland orchestra, as a youth. Depeche Mode, my first as an adult...both are different kinds of music, but both made a positive impression on what kind of music I wanted to make.
What gear do you use?
Acoustic guitar, GARAGE BAND, NANOSTUDIO, BEATERATOR, MAGIX MUSIC MAKER, CUBASE, MTV MUSIC GENERATOR. My favorite piece? All of the songs are a part of my exploration as an artist...
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
I was in a band called New Elementz, with my twin brother, Kevin, in the 90s. We made rock, jazz, R&B, and electronic music, so we were in fusion, because we melded styles. Our last collaboration was a song called "Story", he lended his vocals, I created the music, this was in 2008.
If you could jam with anyone, who would it be?
Duran Duran because I grew up with their sound, Depeche Mode, Erik Mongrain, Yoko Kanno, Metallica, John Williams, and a huge number of my soundcloud friends, too numerous to mention...I want to get into film music, tv shows, and get radio play!
