Explaining “what style of music do you write?”

I write music to drive away Demons and clear everyone out of a room at a party. Truth! As a result l have no more than probably 1, 2 or 3 fans. Hey Baby Que Paso doesn't count because Ke Pa So was Augie's idea, he asked me to write it, then changed most of the words. Welcome to the world of the Music Biz. But screw that song because it doesn't run of demons or clear out a party.

That is the kind of music l write. As a result it made me very few fans, and very few friends. All of which are dead today. But l have written hundreds of songs in my lifetime. It would be silly to write anymore, because they all do the same thing. Run off demons and clear out parties.

I get asked this question all the time, and I'm not quite sure how to answer it. I'm into 80s synth and alt/eclectic rock bands, but I also love the Beatles, 70s rock, and singer/songwriters. I'm trying to find a way to combine all of my influences into my own style. Some of my favorite musicians and influences are [insert list here].

Jason Hook. I enjoy remixing old songs using Audacity together with UnMixIt for vocal removal or isolation

It helps to know who's asking. If I know the person loves death metal I don't waste much time explaining (no offense to death metal fans, it's just that I know you won't like my music). Most of the time I just say that I write in several different genres and also mix genres. Most people get it and they know I play guitar.

All you have is now
Man I'm all over the place on the tunes I've written but for sure most are middle of the road pop love song stuff.
It's is all what happens to be flowing in the universe and going on in my mind.
I've written songs about society being fucked up, a girl breaking my heart, me falling in love, My daughters have been the impetus for a few love hate songs......as has my wife.

Walking through the park on a sunny afternoon
Coulda been January, coulda been June
All I remember was the sun was out
First time I saw that girl I had to shout
I'm in love
I'm in love
With the blond with the big blue eyes

Blond hair and big blue eyes
The sweetest pair of eyes
My eyes have ever seen
She was a goddess do you know what I mean

Totally a McCartneyish pop love song


Tragedies in the walk of life...friends dying, innocents dying..genre runs the gamut of classical prog rock to goat roping country...no rap, no techno but I could write it if n I wanted to.

Which comes first the lyrics or the tune.....I've written both ways..

It's been a while since I wrote one... Have had a couple tragic situations go down recently and yesterday I came across a melody and some words started flowing but too much pressure on me to get other shit done so I got up and left it there lying in the cosmos...maybe I'll remember it maybe I won't ..gettin old and it's harder and harder to remember what I did 10 minutes ago.
