I try to make music that’s pretty and fun or at least pretty fun. I like good songwriting and lush instrumentation. A friend once told me that some of my songs might be kind of sad (but not too sad) if they weren’t also kind of funny (but not too funny). I mostly play guitar, but am able to make a good bit of noise with a lot of other instruments, like my glockenspiel or melodica, say. I recently rented a children’s violin and figured out how to play it to make a string section on a couple of songs. So it’s mostly just me, but I also like to recruit friends to play on the recordings because I’m not an ace with a cello or drums or horns or whatever. And because I have friends who are super talented and it’d be a shame not to have them play something. Maybe I’ll see you soon and maybe we’ll have fun and like each other. I hope so.

 

Your pal,

Robert
