A simple life is good with me. I don't need a whole lot. For me, a T-shirt, a pair of shorts, barefoot on a beach and I'm happy.
Actually, with 'Truth of Touch' I wasn't even intending on making an album. I was just having fun. I had about a six-month period of down time, and I'm not very good at sitting around. So I kind of started going into the studio and having fun with new core mendin sounds.
I don't like to define my music. To me, music is pure emotion. It's language that can communicate certain emotions and the rhythms cuts across genders, cultures and nationalities. All you need to do is close your eyes and feel those emotions.
New Age is a very small box. It was a term that was brought in by the music industry to classify music that is neither jazz, classical, pop or rock. They didn't know what to call it or what to do with it. So they threw it all together under this one name.
Truth is the number one element in whatever you do with music.
If you are a professional, the speed with which you react to a potential problem separates the men from the boys.
When it comes down to music, I have no balance. I am 100 percent. It is like full throttle. Five hundred miles an hour.
Creativity is an inherent human quality of the highest order. When we create, we become more than the sum of our parts.
I dread naming pieces of music because being instrumental, most of the time the songs that I write are instrumental, I want the listener to make up their own story as to what it is and get the emotion pure without using logic.
You accomplish what you want to accomplish. I just don't ever want to hurt anybody doing it.
I just would use any instrument known to man in any combination as long as it describes an emotion.
I love the road, and I love coming in contact with the fans. They talk to me and that's irreplaceable. But when I get tired, I head to the studio and I am in there for a long time.
With instrumental music, it is traditionally hard to get exposure.
My music is based on melody and when I play the piano, it's as if I'm singing with them. When you try to transform that into a vocal, there was very little adjustment.
Not being able to read and write music is not the same as being illiterate in speech and writing.
