I am a 40yr old Heavy equipment mechanic who enjoys music and music creation. This is my hobby to relax and take a break from my busy life. I am happily married with 2 special needs children. This is my outlet to relax and regain my thoughts after long days of caring for my family. I also play the drums as a hobby and stress relief.
I like to play the drums. Got the drums to try music therapy with my kids, that didn't go well, and started to learn myself.
I know some will laugh and that's cool, but hey, I'm not a full time musician or technically trained. I currently use Music Maker Premium 2013. Unfortunately I am working on a limited sound loops file system as both hard drives are at max and I still have 79,800 files to unzip and load. Maybe a large Tera-byte add on hard drive is up next. LOL.
I use the current program hardware included in the Music Maker program.
Avicii, Audio Slave
Steely Dan--all the albums. The rhythms and beats are always different and interesting to learn. 38 special-greatest hits. TOTO- greatest hits.
My influences are my mother and father first off. Music is from my mothers love of rhythms, sounds and good grooves. My creative side is from my father who has always set his mind on something new and tries to go from there. Musically inspiring me are: Steely Dan, 38 Special, Erasure, Depeche Mode, Ocean Lab, September among a long list of other artists.
Most of the music I create are dance,ambient and relaxing music.
