PICK FIVE WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOUR SOUND

Spirited, Honest, Careful, Fearless, Heart

PICK FIVE DECADES AND THE ONE SONG/ALBUM THAT DEFINES IT FOR YOU

1950s
Les Paul & Mary Ford — How High Is The Moon?
Such a beautiful pop arrangement, lovely voice and instrument overdubbing and a spirit of homemade recordings that had too much inventiveness and charisma to be bothered with technological convention at the time. 

1960s
The Beatles  — Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
The Beatles had more clout than many bands during the 60’s and could call the shots and demand the impossible. Love them or not, this album opened up the door for not only concept but technological advancements in recording that prior could have been dismissed as frivolous and unnecessary but are now standards today.

1970s
Electric Light Orchestra – Mr Blue Sky
A song that carried the spirit of 60’s happiness into a technological era of  many capabilities and new sounds, great pop with a lot of spirit.

1980s
Traveling Wilburys – End Of The Line

1990s
Pavement – Rattled By The Rush

PICK FIVE ARTISTS/LABELS/PEOPLE THAT GIVE YOU FAITH IN MUSIC

Temples
Third Man Records
Dr Dog
Neil Young
Tom Petty

PICK FIVE ESSENTIAL PIECES OF MUSICAL EQUIPMENT/FX/EVERYDAY THINGS YOU NEED TO MAKE MUSIC

Tape Machine
Guitar
Drums or anything I can make rhythm with
A Recording Space makeshift enough to keep me on my toes with all its faults
A Ribbon Microphone

PICK FIVE WORDS OF ADVICE FOR THE WEEKEND UP AHEAD

Live, Celebrate, Love, Challenge, Escape.
