I am a singer & lyricist currently singing with Kompoz-based melodic rock band 'Beyond Atlantic' & local (SE Pennsylvania) hard rock & metal cover band SplitStream.
My musical influences span a wide swath of music: from 70s arena rock (Styx, Kansas, Boston), guitar (Al diMeola, Steve Vai etc...) through 80s metal (Queensryche, Dokken, Maiden Priest etc...), 80s & 90s euro metal & art-metal (Helloween, Dream Theater etc...), various forms of electronica, usually ambient & new agey in nature (Enigma, Mike Oldfield etc...).
Prior to joingin 'Beyond Atlantic' and then 'SplitStream' I sang and wrote lyrics for many songs on Kompoz and still look for those special songs that I can contribute too... thoughtful melodic metal, rock, ballads, pop and the like.
I'm a tenor, not a screamer. but wouldn't mind writing lyrics for someone else with a rougher voice for some seriously metallic tunes that are out my range. Drop me a line!
What I am good at: singing, writing lyrics to back-fill instrumental songs that fit the mood of the song (in all my songs the lyrics were written for the music and not the other way around).
