Lara May - Guitar, Vocals, Drums, Synths, Keyboards, Producer, 8-track.
I love to record music! It gives me inner peace to express myself through music when life drives me to insanity.
I started playing my first instrument at the age of twelve, which was the guitar. The beautiful melodies that I heard John Frusciante create on his guitar inspired me to pick up guitar playing more seriously. I play any instrument I can get my hands on though, including piano, synths and drummachines.
I've had a love affair with music for as long as I can remember, but it wasn't until I got all of my recording gear that I could finally start recording my music.
I take music very seriously and work my ass off on every song I record. Mastering is something that drives me crazy and I probably need a producer's advice and assistance; Which I hopefully will get in time. The gear I typically use is Fender Jaguar guitar, Clavia Nord X2, Roland AX Synthesizer, My Grand Piano, Akai and other Drummachines, Various keyboards and my recording device BR-800CD which is an 8 track.
I guess I've always prefered writing and recording everything by myself because of my obsession with perfection, but I don't mind collabrating with friends every now and then.
I love all kinds of music, a few examples: 80s, Synth Pop, Electronica, Pop, Dance, Rock, Hip Hop, John Frusciante, Prince, Queen, David Bowie, Michael Jackson, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Eurythmics, Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk, Daft Punk, Human League, Classical, 50s, Horror Soundtracks, Disney Music and many more.
