Flight of Fancy
The Art of Whimsy is a rootsy, organic folk-rock experience, a memorable collision of foot stomping grooves with meaningful melodies. Songs that sometimes are no less than an introspective dialogue, and other times a "throw your head back and yell 'cause it feels good to be alive" kind of tune. Using a soul-stirring synergy of earthy acoustic instruments, foot percussion and lyrical poetry he hopes to both inspire and entertain with songs that retell the age-old stories of the human drama, the struggles of life and love and the good news of the Love of God . And you're always welcome to dance along. Influences--Wow! Where do I begin? I guess Rich Mullins and Caedmon's Call were a couple of the early influences. Ben Harper is probably the latest influence, while Counting Crows has been the longest and perhaps the most influential. But at the same time, I pull from Dylan, The Beatles, Andrew Peterson (who I think is one of the greatest current songwriters around now), Five O'clock People, Six Pence None the Richer and a plethora of other artists. There's really nothing new going around. It's all just retelling the same stories relived through a new set of eyes and resung through a new set of lungs.
