Once upon a time, a friend of a friend invited me to play keyboards in his country band. I had no experience (classically trained) nor love of country music, but I agreed. They paid me to have fun.
I didn't even know that was possible. Every paying gig I'd had up to that point was low wage, low skill, manual labor.
It was then I knew music was my future.
While searching for a new sound, this idea came to me: combine ancient with modern to create a serene, yet pummeling sound. I take Gregorian chant-style vocals and support it with progressive rock energy/instrumentation, and presto, Gregorian Rock!
I play keyboards, electronic wind instrument, Chapman Stick, and sing. You will hear the influence of my classical background, with hints of Neal Morse, Iona, Frost, and 70s prog.
Feedback from Fans
"It was pure delight playing on these pieces of yours (note: Grammy-nominated guitarist Phil Keaggy played on three of the twelve tracks on FIRE). They are majestic, funky and intelligently composed." Phil
"Imagine medieval monks channeling King Crimson and you have Gregorian Rock, a downright uplifting mix of ancient chants and modern prog rock." San Antonio Express-News
“I love Gregorian (chant) but after a while it gets a little boring but with your underlying rock instrumentals it really brings it to life. Who'd a thunk. Genius, really, GENIUS.” Rick Davis
