Basic Elements of Human Experience

Why do I play music? Music has the power to reach people on a level that few other mediums can. It opens our minds and it sparks our own individual creativity. One artist’s experience can be the doorway to a whole new world of thought and ideas for another person. Basic Elements of Human Experience” does just that…  If you sit down and actually listen to it, it will invoke an introspective thought process about the topics that we all, as humans, tend to most commonly experience as we journey through life. So please give yourself an actual break, and take a minute to think about your own experiences with Love, Loss, Life, Death, Happiness, Sadness, then listen to a couple songs on this EP. I think you will find it was well worth the time.  

 

Who am I? I am a musician from Wisconsin originally, who has lived in Minneapolis, NYC, Philly, and San Diego searching for truth and peace of mind. I have played, written, and recorded punk, alternative, rock, metal, and folk. I am not concerned with image, and am not limited by a specific genre.  I’ve been playing/writing for 25 years and at this point, I am an expert level songwriter. In addition to my current EP, I have two full length albums on deck, the first of which I am currently recording.  My “Basic Elements of Human Experience” EP is essentially a warm-up, to lay a foundation for the full length albums, and a permanent future as a professional musician. I’m currently looking for record labels to partner with, and sync licensing agreements.  Good music will speak for itself, and I have a whole bunch of it.
