When I was young, I can remember my mum playing the piano and some of her brothers played various instruments, so I think that’s what started me on my musical journey.
I remember one day on television, I saw and old film called the “Glen Miller Story” and was so taken back, when by a pure accident, one of his members in the band hurt his lip, so he couldn’t play, and Glen substituted a different instrument in the part, and he realized he had found the sound he had been searching for all that time. The fact that his music still lives on today, years after his plane vanished during the second World War, while going to a troop concert in France, has always stayed with me.
I have been searching for a sound ever since then. Along came Pink Floyd and I was hooked.
I believe that music is like a picture painted in sound, and when combined with video, it can become very powerful.
I started on guitar and later on with the advancement of technology, I started playing keyboards and playing most of the parts and making my own recordings and now videos.
If I really enjoy a piece of music, it gives tears to my eyes and a tingle on my neck. I would love to compose a track that could do that to other people
