Diverse artist who writes and performs different styles of music. From Hampton, VA I have been exposed to a wide range of music and try to incorporate the styles I like, into what I create. I consider myself a one-man band, layering instruments & vocals on a recording.
My main instrument is the drums but I also write lyrics and harmonic-type melodies. I tend to combine my ideas with mood to create songs. In some of them I try to offer positive messages while others are based on myself and where I am at in life. I tend to create a surreal atmosphere with the choice of words in some of my lyrics.
I grew up listening to people like Public Enemy and Easy E, then Metallica, Megadeth, and Nirvana then the Beatles and the Byrds, then Jimi Hendrix and Santana, classic jazz like Coltrane and Elvin Jones, then - completing the genre-circle - the Roots and Pete Rock, Alice and Chains, various blues and bluegrass. I still like all of these groups and genres and like to make my own music.
