“I started listening to alternative rock and metal back in elementary school. MTV was largely responsible for me getting into new bands and music. I’ve also been learning music composition for fifteen years. Things like chord progressions, riffs, singing techniques, and important song structures. Mostly in the metal genre, but with some singer-songwriter acoustic stuff too.”

“Rock and metal musicians generally start writing their songs in English. We’ve all been raised on English-language music, so that’s the default.
