In the vastness that is the internet overloaded and overran with unsigned musicians trying to make a name for themselves, these prospective or hopeful musicians are always attacking the audience the same way, e.g. "We're the best band ever", and I feel this to be contrived and ineffectual. So I would like to present this in a more realistic and personal approach.
Silver Cord is my outlet. It is the means of my artistic expression. Most of the people that know me would probably say I'm a very serious individual. When it comes to music however, I get to relax and be myself. Over the years my musical style has become more eclectic. I have played rock, metal, country, R&B, grunge, alternative rock, and blues. Through all of this I have maintained a unique style. It's kind of a mix between blues, rock, and metal and more recently leaning towards a more bluesy tonality. I am ever changing and do not like to limit myself, and I find I am leaning towards the more intricate and elusive style of blues. I do not plan to be a rich rock star, I would be happy knowing I have fans that actually enjoy my music. This all being said, please take a listen to my music, and judge for yourself.
More about me: I am the father of a child with cerebral palsy, Tristan ,and the step father of two other boys, Alex and Nathan. Adriane is their mother and my wife. Times have been extremely tough finacially lately, then who's haven't? Though tough, I've still been pursuing my career as a musician, I pour my heart into my songs and I hope that I can reach my fans the same way. I was also the lead vocalist, lead guitarist, songwriter, and leader of the former band Diminished Faith.
