Way I Need to Be
Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, I have been writing music and playing guitar since I was 12. My influences were rock bands of the nineties however, eventually found inspiration in musicians like Sting, Stevie-Ray Vaughn, Nuno Bettencort and Michael Hedges. My music is a unique, look into acoustic-Pop with soulful rhythms, great hooks and feel-good melodies. My lyrics are straightforward and passionate, invoking an invitation into my soul. While working as a resident physician (2005-2008), I have spent the last year and a half writing, recording and producing this album. It takes awhile between those long hours at work! The songs truly represent my life in real time. From pain, heartache, finding myself and my integrity, love and appreciation of my wife, to the freaky times when I was single, all wrapped up into one 9 song album. I hope you all truly enjoy the music that I created from my life experiences. NOTICE: Song 4, 'slide yourself here' has a parental advisory warning - indicating that the inspiration for the song was a lot of fun.
