Hi everybody, Rosco here. I just wanted to write a quick post to welcome you all to my brand new website, which I’ll be using to share important info about my life, my music, and anything else useful that I can bring to you lovely people.
For those who don’t know me I’m a biochemist by training, but the real passion in my life is for music. I’ve been playing instruments in one form or another since longer than I can remember, but I find myself most at home when I’m playing guitar.
I’m fortunate to have a number of friends around town that love to get together and jam, and aside from official shows at local bars and venues, one of my favorite ways to play is pop-up shows in public areas – places like the park, the train stations, etc. There’s just something about the organic feel and vibe that is hard to beat when you’re playing out in the open to complete and total strangers, and how you can connect with them through music to spread happiness and joy without even knowing each other’s names.
Aside from live playing, I’m a bit of a home studio nut. It started for me as simply a way to put some songs together so that I can really nail them down for live playing, but I’ve found a lot of enjoyment in learning the ins and outs of, for example, recording. There are so many nuances you can play with such as the type of the microphone you use, the on- or off-axis placement, as the placement within the room that can really bring out entirely different sounds from seemingly identical performances. Sometimes an ideal day could be getting together with some friends, setting up a recording session, jamming out, then listening back over food and some drinks.
The world of music is just so magical and comes inherently with so much depth. With this site I hope to spread the magic even further, so that everyone can have as much opportunity to appreciate the beauty within it if they’d like. Head on over to the lyrics page if you want to check out some of my favorite songs, or just keep an eye out for me around town – and if you see me, please stop by and say hi. Introduce yourself, share some conversation with me. I’m happy to meet new people and would be delighted to meet you. The more people that come together, the more the magic can proliferate.
With that said, thank you for stopping by. I’ll try to keep you all updated with some tidbits as often as possible. Please come back soon, and until next time, be well!
