My musical influences are vast and varied. Electric Light Orchestra has been a major influence in my musical journey, with their unique blend of rock and classical music. Giorgio Moroder is another major influence, with his pioneering work in electronic music. The Strokes have also been an influence, with their blend of indie rock and post-punk. I'm also drawn to the synth-pop sounds of the Pet Shop Boys and Depeche Mode, as well as the electronic music of Moby and M83. Each of these artists has had a major impact on my musical tastes and style.
