I love to write and record and I like to think that I’m continually improving my writing and playing abilities. Living where I do means I can be isolated musically, so I play most instruments myself and sing lead vocals and backing except where the song requires a female lead or the song requires a different male vocal. I collaborate with quality vocalists via the internet and have recently started to collaborate writing with others (something I should have been doing a long time ago), mostly via broadjam.com where there are so many good writers.
Equipment-wise, I tend to use a MacBook Pro with Garageband ’09 and Logic 7 LE, although I recently bought Ableton Live 8 and am loving it’s flexibility. For drums (which I don’t play – two left feet, two right hands) I use “Drumcore 3” samples mostly and samples (though sparingly) from vocaldownloads.com and modernbeats.com.
