To Be or Not to Be…. Greater Than Dave

Who are your biggest influences? I have so many…. where to begin? I grew up listening to a lot of music. Each “group” of friends seemed to be vastly different in their tastes. Is it the theatrical presence of Boy George, Marilyn Manson, and Slip Knot? Could it be the iconic presence of The Rolling […]

Introducing JPOPD1 And His New Sounds

Who are your biggest influences? Truthfully, growing up I had too many to count. But I’m going to keep it real, backstreet boys were one of my favorite. I learned how to write lyrics because of them. I used to take the lyrics from the inserts and rewrite them in different orders just to find […]
