I'm 33 years of age. I've played music all my life. I'm a guitarist/singer/songwriter. Started out playing in church..got older and played clubs. I did the band thing for many years. But as much as I love the feel of playing with a group, it always seemed my various styles and musical growth bumped heads with my band. So, off I went..by myself. Ever since then..and it's been a few years, I have been trying to find a way to put my songs out without going through the ordeal of bands,studio enginers etc.. Then a friend introduced me to computers.(of which I was clueless)Since then(and it's only been around a year & a 1/2)I've tried to learn as much as I can about digital recording. Alot of trial & error!! My main musical style in bands was metal but I have always loved..Music..PERIOD! Although I played metal in bands for years, styles never matterd to me. Each style is just another way of expressing yourself..and many ways to express oneself within each style. There's alot I could say but that's the jist of it!
