Album Notes
Born in the desert of Arizona, I relocated to the beaches of San Clemente, CA with my family in 1997. It was here that I was first inspired to make music after hearing The White Stripes' "Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground" on the radio. I went straight to the local pawn shop and bought an acoustic guitar for $180, then began teaching myself while trying to imitate the raw blues guitar and unrestrained emotion of Jack White. These elements are still hold a strong presence in my music today, though my influences have grown to include a wide range of artistic styles from the simple folk ballads of Dylan and Connor Oberst, to the rock fundamentals of Tom Petty, The Beatles, Steve Miller, and The Doors, to the blues evolution of the Chicago Bluesmen, Led Zeppelin, George Thurgood, Edgar Winter, and the Black Keys, and lyrical honesty of Death Cab for Cutie and independent artist Jason Anderson. My own lyrics and themes reflect strong sense of idealism, retained in spite of “growing up,” and a deep frustration with a society and culture that seems to care little for the things I care about most, intermixed with a sense of hope in the face of love lost and found. Throughout all of my music, whether it’s what I’m listening to or what I’m playing, runs the constant theme of honest and pure emotion, a desire to convey more than just what the lyrics have to say or the notes in a scale. I believe music is meant to be experienced, not just listened to, and that each performance should be unique and powerful in its own way.
This attitude is reflected in my latest album “The Passage,” a collection of songs written over the space of a year, during a transitional period in my life. The entire album was recorded live at my own home in Capo beach, Ca, utilizing only my guitar, my voice, and the occasional harmonica. Each song is a record of a moment in time, a unique experience, the mistakes were left in.
