Biography


I hate band biographies. But they are necessary. At least I hope this one isn’t as pointless and predictable as the others.

I’m from the small town of Wooster, Ohio in the States. I have great parents; I never felt any need to rebel. Instead, I turned to music out of love for the music itself. I started playing electric guitar at some point and found that writing songs was my biggest passion. I admired the talent of some rock stars but never idolized them; I think it’s a myth that you need to be a drug-using, out-of-control, tortured soul in order to write good songs.

Along the way I’ve delved into several styles, but pretty much everything I write stems from rock ‘n roll, bluegrass and folk music. I never really cared much what people thought of my music. From my perspective, I only write music for myself—but I believe that performances are something I do for other people. So I will make my music the way I want it, following only my own vision. If people like it, then that’s great and I will do my best to give them a performance they will remember. I am fiercely protective of my music and passionately devoted to my fans at the same time.

I am a man of many interests and passions and these have led me to obtain far too many advanced degrees at universities in the US and UK. As I am finishing my PhD in mathematics, I decided to test the waters and see if music can be a more serious pursuit in my life. To that end, I have released my debut album, “Squirrel Hunter in Training” in July 2010.
