I grew up on Dire Straits, Def Leppard, Phil Collins, Paul Simon, and Eric Clapton. Then I discovered heavy metal. [long pause] Did the post-rock thing for a while, thinking my 'tortured' soul could could only express itself in chaotic guitar crescendos. ha! Unfortunately, I completely murdered any potential that band had by smothering our beautiful melodies and delicate playing with massive dueling harmonies and other 80s histrionics. hmm, sorry guys.
I then went to Japan and discovered a true and pure passion for whiskey-fueled karaoke. Utterly shameful. I am sure there is evidence online. Don't look, Mum. I returned to Australia, and the last few year have been a very productive time for me, musically. A large part of this has been due to my joining MacJams; we have such a fertile and supportive community here and it has really encouraged me to focus on my hobby and turn it into a craft. Thank you all.
