born in canada, came of age in australia, and recently discovered roots in ireland. i'm a strong believer in the power of perspective. and i have a tendency to become restless staying in one place for too long.
there was walking, and talking, and then came music. first exposure was the recorder in year 5 music, then the trumpet in year 6 band class, then my dad's old yahama steel-string. then i started messing around on a little toy 2-octave kawai synthesizer, and making .mod music with playerpro on an old mac performa. picked up a harmonica somewhere in there, as well, but by year 9, i made the switch to percussion, and brought home a maxwin 5pc. about ten years of miserable neighbours followed. year 10, i wielded my first axe, a sunburst samick strat. music changed from notes, chords and melodies to riffs. that's where things got interesting.
so, over the years i've been involved in a few of what you might call garage bands: White Rhino, MadMonk, Lich... still working on the name for that one. but more often than not, i'm just sitting in my bedroom with a microphone and a mixing desk, doing my own thing. i do a lot of recording with an acoustic guitar, and tend to experiment with different musical stylings... and then there's that strong metal/punk/rock influence from the music that i've listened to the most over the past 15 years or so. anyway, give 'er a spin, and leave me a comment if you think what you're hearing is the shit, or just shit. it's all good, cabron.
