Beautiful Terrible Things / Bio

I did this project with two ultimate intentions. I wanted to make interesting, funky, transient, clean, heart pounding music. And I wanted every musician (trained and untrained) to know that you don't need to pay $15,000 toward production to do so. All you need is an iPad or Mac and GarageBand. For two (going on three years) I was told I couldn't create studio quality sound and produce a full album with just GarageBand on an iPad or iPhone alone. Well, took me some time but I did it. I didn't use Logic or Protools at any point for mixing or mastering. I set out to create a versatile sound approaching it from a theatrical vantagepoint. I wanted to mix the ideas of Prince, Led Zeppelin, Lenny Kravitz, Sade, Joan Jett, Trent Reznor, Pharrell and Twin Shadows to see if I could come up with a joint cohesive sound. Is it good tho? Is this dude crazy? How much did he smoke today? I'll let you be the judge. No matter what I'm very proud of the structure and the quality of each track. There are a few samples posted on this page but if you want to listen to the full work you can check out the links below. Thanks, hope you enjoy bust most of all I hope you're inspired to create.
