“I’ve always been deeply affected by music, so I guess it was inevitable that I would wind up in a band. It wasnt until I discovered prog that my previously tedious piano lessons began to make sense. Ironically, it was at that point that my piano teacher threw me out because I was trying to play in my own way, rather than how it was written down.

As far as im concerned, music has to have craft and thought put in to it to move people, generate a reaction. You can do this in many ways, but my main area within Strangefish is melody and harmony (and the occassional dischord). I’m always chasing that elusive sequence of chords that make your spine turn to jelly. When you discover one it’s the biggest thrill there is!”
