I was in the car driving home from work and I remembered what inspired my sound, my art, my verve. What made it uniquely my own. Not only that every piece has my stroke. That when you look at it, you can't help but say, "Yeah he did that one."
That scratchy grudge feel is a tell all. I suppose it was Weezer, The Offshoots ( out of Bellingham Washington) , Celco Green, Gorillaz, Everclear will definetly have to a band I say has an influence on my vision.
At least the vision I present now. I might even see a little of Fort Minor. The good old days when you woke with a cup of joe and thought for the summer I would go hang out with the tour and party until the sun came up next year.
Things are different now and I suppose my art should mature, I was still listening to Everclear while I was coming home from work and I miss the gigs and bar jams, the fun. So when I present my art it is way to show where and how I grew up. Maybe next year Ill present some more "Grown up" art, but this year will about refelction. Cause I am not that old yet.
