[ SK Sound ] A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away... mp3.com was the source for obtaining indie music online. Facebook & myspace didn't exist, and iTunes was just a dream. It was the grandfather of social networks for musicians, and a vibrant community. I learned a lot during my stay there, made many friends, and the site enabled me to get started.
After gaining over 75,000 plays and a lot of positive listener support on mp3.com, I decided to branch out with my own site. My music has been featured on garageband.com and has also appeared within the top ten on Amazon's Free Celtic New Age - mp3 download section. My keyboard music ranges from New Age, Ambient, and Easy Listening to Standalone Piano and Electronic Classical. Some of my tracks contain Celtic & Medieval influences, genres I also thoroughly enjoy exploring with modern keyboard voices. I've been influenced by artists like: David Arkenstone, Tangerine Dream, George Winston, Enya, and countless other independent, online artists.
My recording techniques are fairly simple. I like to keep a natural sound. You'll hear a "natural performance" in each track, not computer generated. The only xtra computer processing I do is with added effects, loops & mixing. My goals are to simply continue creating, and my hope is that you'll enjoy listening. ;)
