 Irresonance

How did this new album and overall concept for it come about, and what are your ultimate goals with it?

This album was a contemplation of a journey to other worlds riding a ship of sound. As things progress, the sights and thoughts experienced are reflected in the tone of the songs. The album winds down in a subdued return, and the story is over. My ultimate goal with the album is to allow others to share in my interpretations of higher levels of consciousness.

Going back in your life as far as you can remember, what song or performance is the first you recall hearing and being affected by?

Watching my mother performing Dionne Warwick’s “Déjà Vu” when I was around 7.

What in your life outside of your music drives you in a creative sense?

Travel to distant lands sparks my creativity. Each location has unique catalysts, which spur creative energy, and I find it reflected in my musical inspirations.

If you were asked (and we are asking now!) for your advice as to what the Smooth jazz format could do moving forward to insure it relevance and growth, what would your suggestion(s) be?

By paying homage to the past, while remaining contemporary, but showing flashes of the future.

How would you describe what inspires you to do what you do?

I often find it easier to express myself with music than with words, but painting pictures with sound is a great feeling. I can capture my travels and immortalize them in a song.

What aspect of the creative process, from concept to market, do you personally find to be the most rewarding?

It is rewarding when others hear and appreciate my music. To move another person in a positive way is both a challenge and reward in itself.
