About the album: \'For many years I have been wanting to put together my own album. Many times I\'ve been frustrated with having to play in this or that way and not have much artistic control over what is going on around me musically. I grew increasingly hungry to create music the way I feel it. This would enable expression in a way true to myself. I\'ve been influenced by various music over the years and it was about time I put it all together into something that is uniquely mine. I went for whatever came to my mind and sounded right in my head.\' \'I have purposely refrained from hyper-compressing this CD (as it is the case with major labels\' squashed releases). This album has optimal balance of dynamics, volume and transients, resulting in a natural-sounding, punchy, clean music that breathes with life. Want more volume? - Turn it up and feel the power:) \'
