My mission in simple. I feel music the music I create should aim for the quality and passion of fine musical art. This CD has some humor and some tragedy, and best of all it is never boring...your imagination will thank you.
Here are some quotes from people who have profoundly inspired me on the creation of this album:
"It takes a lot of discipline to be very proficient on your instrument. You really have to exercise your will power - reach down really deep within and pull out stuff you never knew you had, strength you ever bothered to find before." Steve Vai
"My own thing is in my head. I hear sounds and if I don't get them together, nobody else will."
"Albums are nothing but personal diaries. When you hear someone making music, they are baring a naked part of their soul to you." Jimi Hendrix
"I want to sing my interior landscape with the simple artlessness of a child." Claude Debussy
"Whether you are playing in the bar, the church, the strip joint, or the Himalayas, the first duty of music is to complement and enhance life." Carlos Santana
"Every guitarist has a special quality of sound. The best ones will use a good ear, much sensitivity, and a thorough knowledge of music to prepare the nuances and colors of sound."
"What Heaven hasn't leant to you...Segovia will never, never, never be able to teach to you." Andreas Segovia
I hope you have found these quotes as awe inspiring as I have and most of all I hope you truly enjoy the music from deep within my heart and mind.
