Creativity and expression is the essence of music as an art form, and I have long been a composer. It is the foundation upon which everything I do is built.
Over the years, I have been a very eclectic composer, dabbling in styles from rock to jazz to reggae to metal. However, in recent years, I have been focusing on further developing my "flamenco fusion" sound (for lack of a better term). Delving into my past as a songwriter, and finding myself inspired by new forms of music and new ideas, the playlist of videos below is a good representation of where I am at currently in my musical journey (remember to click the top right of the video to see the full playlist!):
I would describe my music as latin-tinged improvisation - my instrumental tunes have a main melody or a "head", like a jazz tune, followed by improvised sections. I have a deep repertoire of vocally based tunes that fit well in my set, as well. I borrow elements from Celtic and North Indian music as well. Currently, I prefer a stripped down sound with this project, employing either a bass player and cajon, or performing as a duo (guitar/cajon). I love the intimacy that this sound creates!
