“I would describe my music as somewhat a fusion between the avant-garde jazz I grew up listening to and playing and the synth bands in the ’80s such as the Psychedelic Furs and Tears For Fears. The jazz influence taught me about expression and emotion. The pop side influenced my writing more than my playing. It taught me about finding drama in the music, allowing the melodies to tell a story with tension and release rather than run-on sentences that continue until the music ends. I like to find melodies that will take us on a journey. “
