Who am I? What am I? Why do I exist? These questions have been a part of my thoughts for as long as I can remember. I have always made up songs in my head, but once I began to play instruments, I only wanted to do what I felt. It was hard work making me learn other songs. Now, releasing my second solo CD, “Purpose”, I am learning more about the who, what, and why I am the way I am.
Each song on “Purpose” is straight from my “feel” zone. If I began to produce a song disconnected from that direct tap, I would stop. Sometimes the song would just be trashed if it strayed too far from what was deep in my inner-self. This direct “feel” I believe is the past visions and thoughts of my ancestors deeply stored in my genome. Each project is teaching me more and more about myself. I really hope those that listen can sometimes take that moment and go to their inner-most zone and bring to the surface some of those archived thoughts and visions.
The instruments I use to transform what I feel to music are; six, five, and four string bass, four-string fretless bass, electric guitar, classical guitar, synths and keyboards, and the manipulation of percussion and drum samples. I love engineering and mixing, so I put this tool in the pool also. The ancestral voices once told me that man on this planet exists on external thought, or shall we say the thoughts and views that have been collectively approved as real or sane. I would like to journey further down the path to my true inner-self, to confirm for sure that Birth is not just the beginning and Death is not just The End.
I began my latest project early in 2006. “Purpose” embraces the unique beliefs and directives of my existence. I believe that by doing my music in this way, I’m beginning to serve my purpose in this universe.
