The Emptys Response / About
I have been in many bands over the years and performed live on television in New Zealand on C4, appeared on Nightline, and a TV programme called Tonight. I have performed in Germany, Czech Republic, Hungary, The Netherlands, Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, England, and New Zealand (in which I have also done a national tour in a band.)
Music has been my main passion since I can remember. From a very young age I started receiving tuition on classical piano gaining a 100% pass mark on my first ever music examination in 1982 at age 7. While continuing my piano lessons I used to fantasize about being a 'superstar' electric guitarist a la Eddie Van Halen, or Ritchie Blackmore. Though I had dabbled on my older brothers Suzuki acoustic guitar, my real progress on guitar started when I got an electric guitar and amplifier on my 14th birthday. Since then I have had a variety of teachers, namely Leigh Jackson, Ann Ribiero, and veered off into playing other instruments such as bass, drums, melodica, violin, cello, vocals, among others. After a lifetime of venturing amidst the realms of sonic discoveries, expressionisms, I have achieved my style, my sound, which tends to be cinematic, psychedelic, moody, emotional, eclectic, and personal.
