Now they rationalize everything Donald Trump does and says?
Remember when very conservative Christians legitimately thought Obama was the "Anti-Christ"?
I have a very diverse background in music. Over the years I’ve played with a number of different bands (folk, indie, rock), and also worked as a DJ for a couple years. I play the guitar, bass, drums, and piano. I enjoy writing anything from slower, ambient post rock, to harder and heavier rock music. As a composer, I mix ambient, ethereal music and textures with pop and electronic elements, and strive to create big atmosphere for a cinematic feel.
From the moment I picked up a guitar, I had hopes of becoming a great musician (I like to think I'm slowly getting there). Even after years and years of playing I am constantly learning new things and trying to push myself out of my comfort zone. I was hesitant for quite some time to produce and compose my own music. The fear of fully putting myself out there was a struggle, and still can be. For me it’s been a journey of growth and many failures, and using that in hopes of becoming better. Working as a composer has been a challenging and exciting process so far. I’m in love with the way music can connect with visual media and the emotion it brings to any artistic element. I hope this music connects with you whether a visual element is present or not.
A Little About Me
I live in Denver, CO with my wife Sarah. We recently moved back here from Lake Tahoe, CA. Lake Tahoe is where "BSTE" came to life. Living in a small mountain town helped me learn to appreciate natural beauty and simple living. I began writing music on my own and working as a composer. I'm grateful for the time spent there and look forward to what my next season will bring.
