Getting Personal

I promise we’re getting some great music recorded soon, but I thought I’d take a hot second to talk some background.

So far, we know I’m a dude from Northern Michigan who plays music… Well, it goes a bit deeper than that, but I’m not going to pour my life story out here.

To be brief, I’m a 26 year old aerospace engineer who lives in California and has a deep passion for all music.  I’ve been playing acoustic guitar since I was 13, but quickly joined a band as a bass guitarist after that.  What were we called?  Flock of Cows… leave it to 13 year olds to come up with a good band name.

this was seriously our first album cover as high school freshman…

We recorded another couple of albums through high school, and eventually changed our name to DQ = Victory whilst releasing a decent sounding EP.  Hell, we even had some sweet promo pics done.

train tracks… so intense

Unfortunately, as a band of 4 students at 4 different universities, it was hard to envision a common future.  We all had different career goals… so we split up.  😦

Check out the final track of our 2007 EP below…

Anyhow, I’ve been out in California for a few years now, and have been doing nothing productive with my music.  Thank goodness for this project though, now I have some purpose!

I just recently picked up electric guitar, and I’m having a blast writing songs.  As a rhythm player, you will definitely notice that my music lacks some flare that a lead guitar would bring.  I think I’m well suited to lay the foundation for the songs though, and now we have drafts for all 10 tracks of the album.  Things are going well!

Luckily for me, I also have some great friends and family to help make this happen.  So in conclusion, here’s a picture of me with the mustache I’ve been growing for Movember. Respek.

this stache will be gone in about 2 days…
