"I strive for my own style and sound. When you listen to Pink Floyd, for example, you immediately hear the unmistakable voice of Dave Gilmour’s fret work. That instinct for originality of expression is what defines my approach to music” he explains. “I would say the same about my onstage performance. And when it comes to performing live, I believe if you give the audience energy they will give it back."
