From childhood on, I’ve always been surrounded by music and musicians, and have been inspired to follow in their footsteps, both through creating my own music, and supporting others in doing likewise.
From folk music (my dad was a folk singer/songwriter), to jazz, pop, experimental/electronic, and world music, my musical explorations have involved me in many diverse aspects of music creation and production, from composing and producing my own original music, to supporting other musical artists in various capacities.
New world fusion pieces for synthesizer, guitar, percussion, and vocals.
(Dana McCurdy and Kim Starner)
Solo pieces for synthesizer, sampler, and processed audio.
Some of my singer-songwriter tunes (self-produced).
