What to Expect

Influences & Inspiration
Nature, people, family, my dog, sounds outside in the city are my major influences. From a strictly music perspective my playing is heavily influenced by a multitude of electronic acts, a lot of hip-hop and other very groove oriented styles of music such as soul, funk and R&B.
