To me, I sound like me. What are your thoughts?
Virtually everyone who put out a record from the 1960s through today, especially the synth pop/new wave bands of the 80s. Tight structures, strong hooks, catchy countermelodies...
Raised during the decades where music was accelerating in every direction, Lance's musical tastes were influenced by everyone from the Beatles and Sinatra, through Willie Nelson, to Gary Numan and the Sex Pistols and up into the modern era of Dashboard Confessional and Brooks & Dunn. His eclectic tastes nurtured a similarly broad musical creativity, which has been further enhanced by his extensive travels. Born in Abilene, Texas, Lance has lived in Fort Worth, Las Vegas, Seattle, Orlando, Japan, Malta, Italy, and the British Indian Ocean Territory, and has spent quality time in Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Korea, the United Arab Emirates, Hawaii, Guam, Ireland, Australia and Crete. Having played with several bands in several cities over the years, Lance's musical compositions are indicative of his panoramic life experiences, never settling into one genre, but taking on the flavor of the emotions involved in the story line. As a trained, second-generation journalist, Lance has a lyrical knack for turning a phrase and telling a story in a minimum of words.
