ABOUT

I have been writing my own music for quite some time now and have evolved from simple punk (I was in a punk band some years ago)to finally finding my own niche. I know as songwriters that we hate to categorize our music, but in this case, I believe that it has to be done in order to get together with someone and try to put something together. So I'm gonna call it indie rock with a heavy blues influence. I tend to think that I still maintain some of my punk influence as well, so here and there, I create something with a bit of a faster pace, although I like to try to challenge myself, so I'll use a complicated chord very often, usually a bit off key, keeping the noise a bit of a surprise seeing as how it seems that everything with your usual notes of flats and sharps have had a song put to them already. I guess I just try to stay creative.
I am a bit more challenged when it comes to writing lyrics; this is where I put most of my labour..... trying to come up with words to match a song: the tempo, the beat... and then trying different tones etc... Anyway, thats all I got for now.

Here's an example... Sorry for the poor quality of the sound and the video...
