Feeling a bit camera shy


I guess the monster started with a simple cassette tape I recorded vocals on when I was 7 years old. Now, I am a musician/songwriter looking for opportunities in the business. I play many different styles and instruments. I get influence from a wide variety of music. I have written songs in various genres as well. I believe I have great potential and a solid body of work thus far. I plan to take my music to the masses through any means possible. I am looking to record more albums in collaboration with another producer. I have done many home recordings over the years and self-released them. I named them to reflect how the time in which I was doing them. "Who knows" was my first real attempt and no one really knew I was writing and recording myself then. "Just Another First and Last Name" was titled as such because I felt that I was just one of many names in the vast sea of solo artists. It was released on Christmas day as a gift to my close friends and then soon thereafter the songs went public. "Shark Sugar (tentative)" was named from something Rob Dyrdek said. As a joke I put it on itunes to see what would happen. Twenty-two bucks happened...a slight loss. I used this experience, and many others, to fuel my desire to do it better and bigger. I got some pro pictures and deveIoped my personal website. I made merchandise. I made contacts with the local press and radio stations. I struggled for almost a year to do the things I knew I needed to do. I finally recorded and released my latest work called "Suite Fudge." It is the first album of music completely done in a professional studio. A few songs from it are currently playing on local radio. I am currently (always it seems) working on a new record. I am inspired by a lot of different music, and I write whatever comes out. I don't fit into one genre, and I consider myself a bit of a music chameleon, like many greats I admire: Bowie, Prince, Beck, etc. Sometimes this feels like a curse. I sometimes feel like I don't belong anywhere musically. Then I discovered music libraries. I am seeking the means to get more exposure into this side of things as much as the more publicized side. My work ethic is second to none. I have always heard that you keep going no matter what gets in the way or how many times you question the relevance of it all. So I do.
