Alternative Folk

   As much as folk preserves the gentleness of its more traditional roots, alternative folk meshes acoustic sounds/effects with a stronger singersongwriter style producing a more energetic and diversified sound. I regularly use different ambient sounds in my performances to shape the nature of my subject matter. You will hear synthesizers, string orchestral instruments, chorals, percussion and other sounds that accentuate the various life experiences I write about. Capturing the mood, essence, symbolism and gestalt is what I strive for :)
