As an Acoustic Live-Looping Artist, Spirit creates music like a painter generates a painting. A painter adds to the canvas with every stroke of the brush, and within time, a masterpiece is created. Spirit achieves the same results by using his guitar and voice to create layers upon layers, with your ears being the canvas – for every song – at every performance.
“I love a well written song, with solid hooks and structure – melodies that take you to places, or make you think, or let you dream. I’m not a huge fan of some of the newer ‘synthetic’ songs that have a simple beat, barely any structure, and are over-processed in a studio. I enjoy performing live, bringing a familiar tune – or my original music to people. I consider it a privilege to do so.”
More than just an acoustic guitar player / singer, Spirit is proficient with Percussion, Bass, Lead Guitar, and Rhythm Guitar. Collectively, the sounds you hear at a performance are created organically through his acoustic guitar, which means all performances are live, using no pre-recorded tracks or synthesized sounds. Add this with years of touring and completing over 200 performances per year, Spirit is a hard working and seasoned artist who provides a fantastic sound experience at every occasion.
His first album “All The Pieces” (@2014) demonstrates a fresh and unique combination of modern penmanship, layered with melodic melodies and catchy riffs. Songs begin with a single instrument, which are eventually layered upon to complete the work.
Spirit has released (2018) his first 3 singles from his upcoming sophomore album entitled “Hands“. Three singles “Give It All Back”, “Where, Oh Where”, and “Hands” (self-titled) are created using a modified version of the acoustic live-looping process – which cuts through the preliminary creation, and gets right to the song. The full EP will be available in the winter of 2018.
Since placing Top 20 in the Vancouver area in a recent CBC Searchlight Contest with the song “Come To Think Of It”, he has sold out shows and warmed up for bands such as “54-40”, “PRISM”, “PLATINUM BLONDE”, and for Juno award winners “CHILLIWACK”. He has performed at the Hard Rock Casino Vancouver Grand Opening, and was invited to return to One Year Anniversary in January 2014, with “BIF NAKED” and “EVERLAST”.
The first album “All The Pieces” (C2014) saw the attachment of 2 videos demonstrating his “Acoustic Live Looping Performance” technique, which have gained over 100,000 YouTube views. Watch here:
