Feeling a bit camera shy


The name "a bit farther west" comes from my hometown, Clifton VA. I always lived a bit farther out into the country than most of my friends and because of this had more "quiet time" shall we say to learn how to play instruments and how to record them effectively. Lonely walks on the train tracks gave me the idea of creating music that was true and to the point and sort of bared my self to whomever would listen. A bit farther west exists solely for the purpose of getting things out of my heart and head and onto tape so that I may share my individual experiences with anyone who cares to listen. I believe that a bit farther west is unique in that it is based not only on musical thereoy but rather on human emotion inside a fond warm memory. The songs are simple and to the point and state exactly what I want to say without having to plunge some "catchy chorus" down someone's throat over and over again. The sounds and instruments are different from song to song and I believe that is what it takes to grab an audience and hold them during a performance.
