Talking about music is kinda like talking about sex. Can you describe it? Are you supposed to? I've been doing whatever it is I do for six years. People tell me I'm great all of the time. Some times i believe them, sometimes I don't.
I would consider myself, however, a great student of music. My influences range from the greatest songwriters such as Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, and Arlo Guthrie to Jeff Buckley, Nick Drake, Bright Eyes, Damien Rice, and Ani Difranco. I love rock music when it's done well. A Perfect Circle's Mer de Noms is one of my favorite records, along with everything Radiohead did after, and including, OK Computer.
It seems stupid just to list off influences, because it would bore you all to death. Does anyone care that I listen to Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, the books, Those Bastard Souls, Trembling Blue Stars, The Streets, Bruce Springsteen, or Peter Gabriel? Probably not...still, it seems important.
I've gone through countless phases of wanting to sound like someone else, namely Pink Floyd, but I've reached a point in my skill level where I'm content to sound like myself.
I'm currently working on a concept record right now, and I'm looking for some people to lend a hand, add their talent on some songs. I don't really care about fame or money. Mostly I would just want to meet some cool people, make some new friends, and record an album that I could be proud of. I want to play shows, and I think it would be incredible to travel with a band.
Call me if you read this whole mess, let's make an awesome record. Joshua. 595-5556
