October-November 2016

The music I write and record under my own name is just the kind of music I`d like to listen to and therefore has no commercial consideration whatsoever, which means it`s a bonus if other people like it!

October-November 2016

The main reason I started to play the guitar was Randy Rhoads. He had the biggest influence on me and my playing. When I first listened to him I couldn`t believe what I`d heard.

October-November 2016

I love creating things, so putting my project together myself, while it was a lot of work, was very rewarding and also a good learning experience.

August-September 2016

My favorite bands were AC/DC, Motorhead, The Stray Cats, The Sex Pistols and so on, so mainly hard rock, heavy metal, punk rock, and rockabilly/psychobilly stuff.

August-September 2016

When I started playing guitar I was very fortunate to have all the great guitar players in the prime of their career to look to for inspiration.

June-July 2016

My music a mix between the aggression of metal and the madness and extravagance of prog-instrumental-rock, I don`t close myself in within just a single genre.

June-July 2016

It`s much more difficult to attract the audience without vocals. For that reason, it`s very important to build some nice and attractive themes and melodies in instrumental music.

April-May 2016

I run a small production company and we are learning the ropes as we go. Someone once said you`re either learning or dying. I prefer to learn.

February-March 2016

I first picked up the guitar when I was around 7, then became hooked from the age of about 12 onwards. I used to wake up in the middle of the night to play as I was just so excited by it!

February-March 2016

I`m always looking to better myself as guitarist, not so much the speed or technique but more the touch and sound that I try to achieve.

February-March 2016

I owe my entire career to the internet and social media sites. If Mark Zuckerberg knows how much Facebook developed my career I probably need to pay royalties to him!

February-March 2016

I really want to hear these songs live. I have many plans for this album, and I would love to play festivals and do guitar clinics. It would be a lot of fun.
