SongVault Artist Profile
New York, United States
Power Pop / Hard Bop
I'm a guitar player by trade and I was with the Joe Jackson Band for about 7 years. Also, I'm a writer, producer, I create Hip Hop drum loops and sample cds for Zero G, and put out my own CDS the latest one being "Swinging Guitar Sounds Of Young America". Some have said the CD causes "Genre Whiplash".
The CD is a very different kind of thing Every cut a completely different style of music, each an original song but played in the style of a different artist. Everything from The Beatles Beach Boys, Cream, Jeff Beck,Blondie, Bob Wills,Les Paul, BB King, to Elvin Jones and more.
My current thing is adding "icing" to people's songs. Little lo fi touches and odd little touches to make a trak come alive. Of course I love adding a guitar solo as well if the song seems to want it. I LOVE all kinds of music and I'm a vampire for playing diffferent styles of it on a daily basis. I crave the variety.
