Liquor Limes & the Treasures of Life
Born & raised in the northern part of Switzerland in Europe. During my schooling years I was entchanted by art & paintings. I evolved an infatuated affection for the music and it's world. From then on I realized my own musical fantasies to get to know and amalgamate the various styles and directions. My cosmopolitan parents (who temporary live in the USA, South Asia and Switzerland) & my brothers provided me with different cultural and ethnic arts & life styles. So you'll find romantic, oriental, country, european, southern rock as well as jazz elements in my assortment. Such eclectic musical influence left it's fingerprint and contributed richly to the growth of my own personality. British guitarist Ritchie Blackmore was my first guitar Hero & I still dig his playing to this day. In the mid eighties I came across Eric Johnson. He is one of my main influences. The versatility of Lee Ritenour was another big influence. Acoustic Guitar duo Strunz & Farah helped me to learn more about latin rhythms. I am a big fan of Flamenco music & blues music in general. I also really like the piano playing and the arrangements of Keiko Matsui Other Artist I really admire; Classical Composers such as Franz Liszt, Frederic Chopin, Mozart & Igor Strawinsky to name a few.
