Bio

When I write music, I don't think about who I can sound like or imitate. I never listen to music while I'm creating it, because I don't want to fall into the trap of following another's path. I pray and ask God to lead me where I am to go. If I come up with an idea and it sounds good at the time, I wait until the "cooling off" period begins. That's the time when the excitment has worn off. If I have the same feeling about the song as before, then I know that I'm on the right track. If it leaves, then I know that I need to go back to the drawing board.

Usually, I think in terms of the weirdness of the chord structure. That's what gets my attention. If it feels uncomfortable to me, the more I stay in that zone. I like to surprise people and give them something that they're not expecting. That's what makes what I do so much fun. When I work at a song or an arrangement and it makes me sweat, that's when my best comes forward. I enjoy working under pressure. Anything that's too easy for me to accomplish is too easy for me to do. I don't like to take the easy way out. I will always take the "OH, THAT CAN'T BE DONE" road.
