An all original multi-instrumentalist/composer/producer/song-writer working with various genres with over 20 years of experience!
I started as a musician early in life, taking up the drums when I was 12 years old followed up with electric/acoustic guitar, bass, piano, song-writing and vocals. When I was 18 I started getting into production and started building a home studio. Fast forward to today. I've now independently released 8 studio albums, have a healthy library of remixes that I've done and have also formed an international team of producers called ILP (International League of Producers) and since 2015 we have put out 17 original songs and accumulated over 350 remixes so far from around the world!
Aside having a myriad of plugins and VST instruments to use in conjunction with my midi-controller, I very much enjoy recording live instrumentation with my drums/guitars/vocals. The live sound really helps projects sound organic and I am all about that, as well as delivering authentic emotion along with it.
