Joshua Cooley, solo artist, Temecula Ca. With drums done by Brady Connors.
I believe in music that requires patience, music that builds on itself over a period of time often longer than the three minutes and thirty seconds so common of modern pop and rock today. My philosophies are based off of the true genius of all music, which is classical music, which generally has no lyrics, and the music spans over a long period of time, creating highs and lows, moments of happiness, sadness, confusion, anger and other mixed emotions. I strive to fuse this aspect of music with rock, and to create a sound and feeling that no other artist has been able to capture before.
My song "Tinnitus" frequently confuses people, and is either praised as my best song to certain people who can understand and appreciate it, and criticized as my worst at the same time. If you are confused by this song, the first thing I have to say is--good. Look into it a little deeper, discover the definition of what Tinnitus is, and let me paint a picture for you of my daily suffering with it.
I encourage you to approach music from different angles, different lights. Analyze lyrics, not just for my music, but for all music that inspires you, music is a form of poetry and lyrics are the foreground of this poetry, I believe lyrics are far too discounted today for as long as "the beat is good" then no-one seems to care otherwise. I hope you enjoy my little creation, if I receive enough positive feedback I will invest more of the money I don't have into professionally producing more.
