      My career objective is to sculpt my musical voice until it is in demand and highly desirable in the music industry. I will achieve this goal by creating uniquely beautiful works throughout my Berklee career and young adulthood. My continued study in the field of Music Production and Engineering will expand my knowledge of audio technologies and production techniques. I will use this knowledge to refine my musical voice, bringing it to the forefront of the music industry.

Publications

 

“OUT - Oms" (2015) reviews

“You can feel the energy hurtling into the room as a furious wall of sound funnels its way into your eardrums like a cascading flood of adrenaline. Out provides the audience with a torrent of guitar and percussion that despite its furious pounding is far from an opaque blur rather tapestries of finely woven translucence.”

-Tim Whale, emergingindiebands.com

 

“RiceCrackers - Five Golden Rings” (2015) reviews

“Pitch and tempo changes feature significantly, giving the track a dramatic presence, almost theatrical- poetry in delivery as the inflections underscore particular ideas. The voice challenges the audience with haunting use of unexpected keys, whilst the percussion slips between pace highlighting the disturbance of the lyrics. Guitar and Bass, whilst adding to the drama and always distinguishable, take the role of framing the voice in supportive roles.” - Tim Whale, emergingindiebands.com
