I was born a musician... we all are, no? ;) The earliest memories of playing music was the Recorder in grade 2 or 3.
What was the first concert you ever went to?
Kiss, with my best friend at the time, Mark. It was mostly loud. Too loud. You could not really hear the music as it drowned itself out.
What gear do you use?
Akai Professional, Korg, and MAudio PK88. The MAudio has is a wonderful sounding reproduction of a Yamaha Grand. The Akai is a capable Midi controller and synth keyboard. I also have a Jupiter flute, and Tin Whistle. I used to have a Strat, but it was stolen last fall. I use Cakewalk Sonar, AVID, and a variety of Steinberg products for recording and production.
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
The band "Yes". First heard them on the radio. CHOM FM in Montreal.
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
Only my high school band. Not sure a band is my thing.
If you could jam with anyone, who would it be?
Rick Wakeman or Keith Emerson. Pioneers of epic keyboard driven music and the 20thCs greatest keyboard talents.
You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
Tool - Aenima. Dunno why this album has been "untiring" for me.
