No One But You

Do You Ever Think (What Might've Been)?


Yes, I am writing my own bio. I've played piano since I was a toddler. Bashing on a tiny octave and a half keyboard and slowly figuring out the subtleties of one-key-at-a-time melodies. I learned by ear, watching my dad practice for church. (And yes, I am the son of a preacher man.) At the age of 13 I started writing my own music, focusing on writing and composing, though I can't read or write music very well. At the time it was all instrumental. But after a year of fine tuning a handful of songs, I started writing lyrics and songs poured out of me. I have a book of lyrics I've forgotten the music for.

I bought my first guitar Christmas of 2003 or 2004 and started learning to play and writing immediately. During that time I became part of a duo project called Me and The Kid with Zack Ciras (The Accident That Led Me To The World). We recorded and played out until early 2008 when our respective lives and responsibilities forced the project to a halt.

Now with my acoustic EP "demo for the solo listener" I've begun a new batch of songs taking me further into the possibilities of songwriting and exploration of different styles, vocal techniques, improvisation and so on. 2009 is proving to be exciting, important, and as open-ended as this biography.
