Right now, I'm kind of a band of one. With the miracle of multi-track recording and mixing, I write and record in my garage, which was converted to a music room. I play the guitars and bass, and I use a program called Cakewalk Music Creator (www.cakewalk.com) along with my Blue "Snowball" USB microphone to record and mix. Using the soft-synths built in to cakewalk, I make drumtracks and other embellishments to go along with the recorded parts. I can't sing to save my life, so many of my songs should have vocals, but with nobody to record them, they are all instrumental at this point.
Outside of music, I enjoy hiking, photography, skiing, camping, bbq, being outside I guess.
