Primary influences are Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, James Brown, Miles Davis, Dr Dre, Steely Dan and Chopin. Into all styles of music. Primarily a guitar player. Also sing, play bass, keyboards, and percussion as well. Also into drum machine/beat programming. Very comfortable in a recording studio as both an engineer/producer or as a studio musician. Have my own home studio. Write music with my brother Paulie Z. Music ranges from Blues to pop to the heavier side but always with a strong groove. Like mixing unlikely styles, genres, and instrumentation. I'm into music that answers YES to the following 3 questions: Do I feel the groove? Do I hear the message? Do I believe you?
