He subsequently placed first in the Acoustic Category of the 4th Annual Montreal Guitar Grand Prix.
He was initially drawn to the shred metal guitar of Judas Priest, Motley Crue and Megadeth, before discoveringNiccolò Paganini and exploring classical music of the Romantic period. He then expanded his interests to include bluegrass music after hearing Leo Kottke, Tony Rice and Joe Maphis. His original compositions are influenced by all of these things, along with video game music which he absorbed while playing the NES as a child. His music has also been described as similar to the European Melodic Metal which he enjoys. His style has evolved into a new form commonly referred to as “Acoustic Metal”, i.e., music similar to shred metal but played on an acoustic guitar. Other influences include Canadian folk, techno, and trance music.
“Time 2” topped iTunes charts around the world, hitting number one in Finland, Germany and Sweden.
