Biography

Doctor by Day Home Recording Artist by Night

I have been writing and recording my own songs for about 2.5 years. I initially began this as just a hobby but my skills have gradually improved and I now would like to take things to a higher level.

My inluences are many and varied but currently I have been listening to a lot of folk rock music such as the Fleet Foxes a and the Mountain Goats and Band of Horses as well a renewed interest in Ben Folds and Ben Kweller.

I am not exactly sure how to describe my vocal style and mo only critics to date have been myself and my 8 year old daughter both likely to be a little biased. So any form of feedback is welcome.

Lyrically I am still experimenting with everything from standard pop/country rock to what I can only describe as Islamic Gospel Songs inspired by Rumi and other middle eastern poets.

All my songs are written and performed by me and mixed/mastered on my laptop. My irritation with this process is mostly with synth drums and keyboard bass lines and I think live recordings of these would greatly improve both the quality and feel of my recordings.
My goal is to improve both lyrically and musically with each new effort.
