About Me

========================
In 2018 I started making some small loops with a looper pedal, hoping to find a band to play with. That band never came, so I switched to using a DAW, and added more instruments and more ideas.

Slowly, very slowly my "sketches" became songs, to a large extent thanks to all you beautiful Loopermen and Looperwomen. The advice, ideas and support I received here has been nothing but amazing and some of you recently even started suggesting I should bring out an EP... which came out:

After this EP in 2022 I'm now working towards the goal of a full album in 2023... And that's again thanks to all of you.

Instruments I play

My setup:
- all guitars are through my pedal board, direct input into my Focusrite Scarlett
- the bass is also DI
- a condensor mic
- a (rather basic) Roland drum set
- a Novation keyboard
(and some other assorted gear when I feel like it).

I also have access to a practice room with an accoustic drumset, where sometimes I record live drums and live vocals.

So it's all pretty convenient - I can (and do) grab a guitar at any moment :)

Software I Use

My Music Sounds Like

I hope I sound like... Me, really. And that can be almost anything, from Rock to Latin to EDM to funk and back to blues.

I realise I still sound like... A bit of a mess, but I'm learning. Have any tips, questions or comments?

In My Other Life I ...

...work 12 hours a day. Unfortunately, this sometimes cuts into my music time, but then again, somebody has to pay for all the gear ;)
