“Most of my work, obviously, has been in the prog/metal field. I’ve done a few other things that lean towards ambient/electronica. Those two styles were a big influence on me in my formative years. But I was also hugely into more straightforward hard rock as well. UFO, Scorpions, etc… even Bad Company. KoM allowed me to tap into those influences more and it was very rewarding. Now, that doesn’t mean I’m never going to do another prog record, or acoustic, or whatever. I hope I still have a few more of those in me. These are all just manifestations of what I enjoy as a listener and am lucky enough to explore as a musician.”
