Product notities

Kitty Warrior Princess is a project born of pain, anguish, and the ecstacy of release. Some people were born with different gifts, like the gifts of cunning and ruthlessnes and insensitivity, or at least they seem like gifts when you are trapped in the life of the paper heart that seems to attract the destructive little beasties like blood in the water. What I guess I mean is this project is my Phoenix project, my rise from the ashes to reclaim once and for all the power, heart and soul that was given me at birth, the power to feel, to love as only I or any unique individual can love, yet to never again allow myself to be trampled upon by these beasts again! Kitty to me is representative of my first love, my kitty when I was quite young. I loved this cat, I cried at movies. I was not a 'man'. And I loved it. Warrior is both my love of athletic pursuits as well as my determination never again to be subjegated by those who's strength, riches, or wisdom is there god. It's the embracing my true 'I am' known only to me and God is worth fighting for. After all, man is mortal and nothing to fear, even if he strongly feels otherwise. Princess speaks both to royalty and power as well as freedom from the bondage of gender, at least to me. If man wishes to be the strong, proud, boasting name that is entitled to their dominion on earth, then Princess is an annulment from their principalities and pretense. Plus, I was raised by women, strong women, who created an environment where I could find myself and be free, at least for a while. Then trouble and evil of life emerge. And that's where the journey begins... Kitty Warrior Princess and writing for a female persona vocally gave me the freedom to truly express myself in a way that did not feel possible at the time and as a male. Despite my physical and mental strength, intellect and somewhat imposing physical size I often identify as much with the female in a relationship as the male so it was a perfect fit... The music... Well that's a a different chapter of this story altogether. I was heavily influenced by classically influenced metal while at the same time really digging the Lillith Fair ladies. I was a classical composition major at one point and the writing styles really seem to merge naturally. One song for future release I even wrote right in front of one of my guitar students as an example of creating mature guitar composition from fairly simple chord progressions. Serendipity rocks! I wrote and recorded these songs a little while back. I had to wait until the irons cooled down enough for me to begin to move forward with this project. After all, the songs covered a decade long dysfunctional relationship, a breakdown of sorts, a divorce, some recovery relationships, and most importantly, the renewed determination to be who and what I choose to be whether anyone likes it or not! It was a lot to deal with. Most of the songs serve the mood and melody. I like to write lyrics around the rhythm and contour of a beautiful and inspiring melody. Some of them are hard, driving, brutal and uncompromising. Some are light and melancholy. Some a reminders of flashes of life where things seemed functional and enjoyable for a moment. Some are just fun. All of them reflect some meaningful part of me, deep and at times shallow, but meaningful, at least to me. I am a guitar player and composer/songwriter first and foremost. I have been a guitar teacher for years and have tried to pass on the full passion, dedication, discipline, and love of this art as best I could. My students often inspired me as much or as I inspired them. Maybe more so. It has worked out well! As you listen to the music, take a moment here and there to really appreciate the intricacies that are present in some of the songs. I had a lot of fun writing each part. I was always a huge fan of counterpoint. Although I personally wrote, arranged and produced all of the Kitty Warrior Princess music, I obviously could not have produced these recordings without the help of some amazingly, awesome, talented, and generous people. James Johnson, the drummer and audio engineer, is one of the dearest people on this planet to me. He is also hugely talented and insanely in demand. Jeff Weimer, the bassist, embodies the essence of what I look for in a bass player: the bassist who creates with the counterpoint and can interact with the drummer like John Paul Jones to John Bonham. He is a rare talent to me. And last but certainly not least, is the vocalist, Vanessa Mondonarro. She listened carefully to my every description of my vocal melodies as well as the personality I hoped for. She did the impossible. WIth in a short time with very little rehearsal time she brought personality to life. It's a tough job! Trust me! These Warriors of music donated time and energy and effort, always brought their 'A' game, and made these recording sessions special and fun. I will never, ever forget them! Well, that's it for now. I really hope you enjoy the music. There is definitely more to come. The world is a spiritual place for good and evil and I hope that Kitty Warrior Princess is one spot along the way where you all can trade in for some good and healing love. Peace! Kitty Warrior Princess OUT!!!
