Got my first guitar when I was 7, by the age of 10 I was standing on stage for the first time, and it shouldn't remain at that. After school I studied music, focusing on the styles of rock and fusion guitar and went on to be a musician.
Since a couple of years I have turned to 'Acoustic Fingerstyle' or as a friend of mine called 'freestyle guitar'.
I guess my style is best described as rather unique acoustic guitar playing to support my songwriting. I try to swiftly combine fingerstyle with tapping and percussion on the instrument to create a dense sound-scape, making a single guitar resonate like an entire band.
My influences are ranging from funk, blues and rock to streaks of jazz and the catchiness of a solid pop tune. After years and many different directions as a musician and human being, my love of guitar prevails and brings me to the roots of playing the acoustic instrument.
