I figured out early on what I wanted to do.
I want to write songs and play them for people - live.
My original idea was to produce and not make records myself.
At different times in my life I met God from a different point of view.
If it is true that we have a personal relationship with God, then that's enough for me.
I've seen a study in the last year that digital sound actually induces stress in the listener.
I got out of high school, bought a recording studio and started operating it as an engineer and a producer.
You know, the thing that struck me about Civil War music was how bloody it was; it was full of hatred. There was incredible vitriol in it.
I love loud music. I listen loud, and that's part of how I've learned how to do this. Record softly and play back loud and a whole other thing happens.
I made a few records here and there by default, but I wasn't ever comfortable in that role. I wasn't comfortable on stage. We'll see how it goes this time.
