EMP_E2 was born into a military family on Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana. While growing up in Taipei, Taiwan, he started playing guitar and performing in teenage bands. Throughout his adult life he has enjoyed singing, songwriting and producing music. Although an accident injured his right hand, and he was unable to pick or strum the guitar, the injury led to the development of his unique acoustic style of playing, offering a melodic, romantic sound. His ability to render single note inflections in a one of a kind patting style, generates the sound of more than one musician playing. This unique sound blends well with the smooth memorable romantic lyrics..clearly identifiable in the acoustic versions of his songs.....enjoy.
