The #1 question asked of musicians: "How would you describe your music?"
My answer: "Indie Pop, with a minty aftertaste...kind of like eating a sexy Peppermint Pattie."
I figure, if someone told me they just heard new music that sounds like a sexy, mint confection...I'd want to hear what they were talking about. Am I right, or am I right???
My philosophy is, you gotta keep it fun. Of course I want my songs to get people thinking, and maybe even give them something to talk about, but if at the end of the day I can get someone to laugh about the unappreciated work of The Joker (cue track #6) then I'm happy. I think of my music as a body of work; my presentation of it is the skin, my melodies make up the blood that flows through and helps it's muscles work and such, and my lyrics are the bones that keep it standing.. My job is to form all this together into a tight little package that construction workers might whistle at...hopefully you'll feel compelled to holler too. Don't worry, I'm not easily offended and I’ll take what I can get, so whistle away.
