The Darwhine project is genre-independent, which means that the next album may not necessarily sound like the previous. The project is influenced by a variety of genres including electronica, heavy metal, progressive rock and old-school classic rock, to name a few. Some examples of the musicians musical influences include Pink Floyd, OSI, Blackfield, Brian Eno, Porcupine Tree, Yes, Rush and Chroma Key.
The musician is a drummer / percussionist and his favorite drummers include Neil Peart and Gavin Harrison. The focus of the Darwhine album, however, is overall musicality and feel, so the drums and percussive elements compliment the rest of the music instead of standing out.
