    Wonderful...Accessible....it a rare commodity when technique, popular form and composition contains strong elements of the spiritual less encumbered side of expression. And, on tracks were the spirit trumps challenges form, the artistry and technique; the sheer professionalism brings expression to a high level and to a broad audience. I guess I am a fan.

Q: How - given just how huge the range of things you can do with a keyboard instrument is - did you decide to focus on the guitar-like melodic stuff that you play with Nail? I love it :)

A: It kind of just happened... I was strongly influenced by early 70's synthesists like Pat Moraz, Keith Emerson and more; specifically Jan Hammer and his incredible pitch bending technique. His album "Black Sheep" featured extensive "guitar" trax, all done on a custom Minimoog. Couple that with my love of the guitar - John McLaughlin, Jeff Beck, Bill Frisell, Scofield - I found myself taking the synth further & further into "guitar land".
