"From a small town in central Ohio, I've been born and raised in Granville. Nice community, although when it comes to someone different like me at this age, no one really enjoys your company much. And being almost full lock-down in my house, only connection to the outside world being the computer, and most of this time, I spent it with music; listening, finding, playing, making, and all that such. I'm not really that great, but I do throw down some decent blues licks here and there mostly and know a lot of obscure vintage music, spanning from all over the globe. A great amount of what I get inspired by, is Blue Cheer, Tamam Shud, Taste, and many other bands spanning from other genres. Been playing guitar for about only 3 years and just now dabbing my toes into setting out some of my own music for others. A lot of the ideas I get for my work, comes from experiences: isolation, rejection, hated when trying to be quiet and good, and several bad (...) experiences I don't feel need to be mentioned too detailed at the moment. From a lot of these events that have gone on through years of my past, I've found myself with gothic artistry, and when reaching into my music, a classic, dark blues, such as what the song Too Far Gone is. Hope you enjoy."
