Goya’s Vision is my outlet for creative work, with an eye toward collaborative opportunities.
I’ve been writing poems, stories, articles since I can remember. I was that guy who actually liked writing essays in school, even after my 8th grade English teacher accused me of plagarism. That stung. But I’m over it now. Mostly.
I started playing guitar in bands when I was 14. Maybe not so well, but I loved it.
Picked up a bass when I was 18 and never put it down.
At 19, Jesus rescued and restored me.
My influences range from progressive rock: it took me years to learn Chris Squire’s bass line from Yes’ Roundabout, through R&B, soul, Motown. I wish I could sing like Marvin or Otis. As far as playing R&B bass, well, let’s just say I’m still trying to master the fluidity of the bass line on Rapper’s Delight. James Jamerson? Forget it.
All these influences mix together in songs I write. I play or program some of the instruments. Other musicians are noted in the credits.
Since I ain’t no Otis, I invite friends, family, people off the street to help with vocals. Vocalists are listed in the credits.
I enjoy featuring other people’s work so feel free to hit me up.
Thanks for visiting!
