Tell us about your experience and aspirations as a songwriter.

My friend and I were doing a contest for a little while where'd we'd try and come up with 30 interesting seconds of sound each week. I have good ideas and my thirty seconds were catchy. I'm new to the DMV area and would like to meet people who enjoy music in this way.

What type of music do you write?

I use electronic sounds in my music, but I can just sing it if the acoustic-only rule is strict. They aren't abrasive sounds. I'd say I write disco or sad music because those are the two most mature ideas I have right now.

Who are some of your favorite bands, singers, and songwriters?

Musically I'm an late 80s/early 90s hip hop fanatic, but I don't create rap music. Joni Mitchell, Blitzen Trapper and Imogen Heap are three artists off the top of my head who I admire. Hip hop has to have a good DJ - Main Source (creators of the all time best hip hop album) had two DJs. I'm also a turntablist and scratch nerd.

Introduction

I sing and sometimes write short songs. I'd like to take it more seriously.
