Tell us about the genre of your music. 
I’m terrible with genres. It seems that people use comparisons to other artists as a way of describing music more than describing with genres. I do not know what our genre is but I like rock, jazz, country, folk, hip hop, rap, funk, soul, classical, blues, etc.. I’m sure I’m missing some. I like to think that everything I’ve ever heard, read, seen, smelt, and felt goes into the music I compose without being concerned with what genre it might fall under.
