"I'm just a guy who records acoustic song demo's at home. I also produce animations, video's and the sounds and music with them

Why this name?

Because it was there.

Do you play live?

I very rarely play live. I love it when I do. I wouldn't like to perform the same songs repeatedly night after night though.

How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?

The internet and mp3 allows guys like me to have a possible worldwide audience of acoustic demo's they recorded and uploaded from their home.

Would you sign a record contract with a major label?

I would cross that hypothetical bridge if I ever came to it in reality.

Your influences?

Neil Young plus Crosby, Stills and Nash, James Taylor, Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens, Jackson Browne, Joni Mitchel, Leonard Cohen, The Who, The Kinks, The Beatles of course. So many more.

Favorite spot?


Equipment used:

An acoustic guitar, one microphone and some software on my computer.

Anything else...?

I know I'm not a good vocalist but I like to think my songs might be good performed by one.
