My Electric Setup

The Master Plan

Hello, I guess i should say a little about myself. Im 18 years old, and live in Ontario Canada. I am currently, not in any bands. I have been working on some acoustic stuff lately. Its reminiscent of the Wilco, Lowest of the Low, Dave Matthews band, ect. I work full-time at Music 21 in Bolton. Im usually either running the store myself, or working on shows on the weekends. Usually i take part in load ins and load outs of the gear, and operate the stage lighting and intellegent lighting.

Some More Words

Lately ive been listening to alot of Garage rock, that really spawned off my interest in the band Guided by Voices. Right now im mostly listening to bands like The Vines, The Breeders, The Soundtrack of our lives, The Hives, The White Stripes, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Joel Plaskett Emergency, The Rapture, The Dears, The Dandy Warhols, and The Strokes (why do they all start with "The"???). Elvis Costello is becoming a strong influence for me when it comes to songwriting. Playing wise, it seems to be Radiohead who im most like. I am VERY BIG on Dave Matthews band, i cant say anough good things about them. And im really starting to become partial to John Frusciantes playing, thats how id like to play.
