Phantom Hill / Bio

Instrumental guitar player from Abilene, Texas. Been playing guitar since I was 4 years old. Huge Rush fan...also fan of Paul Gilbert, Dream Theater, Big Country. Right now I am looking to do TV commercial songs/radio spots...and music for Indie movies. I have a complete home studio set-up, capable of engineering to commercial standards if need be. I really enjoy playing and creating new music. I guess a lot of my guitar playing is in the "Abstract". I like combining different guitar styles and sounds to create very original sounding music. My most heavy influence, and its not something I chose to pattern after, is Rush. It's "in me"; in my playing. It just happened. Followed by the others influences I mentioned such as Big Country, Paul Gilbert, RATT. And then, growing up around country music here in West Texas really added some flavor as well. I try not to listen to main stream radio, because I do not not want to be "told" what to like, and I don't want to "pollute" my song writing with what might be the flavor-of-the-month type of sound. Although, I gotta say, I will D-tune, and go all "Metal Up Your Ass" on occasion. Its fun to do that. But what makes it more interesting is start blending acoustic guitars into it, doing "weird" leads, suond effects ect. But, I hope you enjoy the music.
