City Shadows (volume 1) was a milestone release for me. Spanning years of bedroom production and various inspiration, this collection of songs provides an introspective journal of my adventures in sound. City Shadows came out of late nights spent playing with new software and hardware instead of focusing on my studies in high school and the early part of college. Branching out into downtempo, drum & bass, and trip-hop influences I assembled songs that were driven by my expressions through these genres.
Originally released in 2004 to a local audience and the internet via mp3.com, I am proud to bring this one to a wider audience!
At age 6 I began hammering out short songs on my Dad's guitar. At age 11 I rocked out to grunge music in a garage band. Armed with a computer and a MIDI keyboard, I began making electronic music at the age of 14. My passion has grown through the years and so has my bedroom studio. Whether I'm working on downtempo infused tracks or grinding out trance and house tunes into the wee hours of the morning, I keep my body and soul open to new sounds, ideas, and discoveries along the way. My goal as an artist is to contribute my work back to the community for all to listen to and incorporate into the soundscape of life.
