Great music is not always achieved by adding more sounds, but sometimes by taking them away.
Conspiracy of One is my solo acoustic project. Solo in the truest sense of the word, as it’s a one-man operation (It’s even in the name!).
In this way I explore many styles (rock, blues, folk, funk, punk, finger picking) through an acoustic lens. I use only my voice (with minimal effects), a guitar and my brother’s tambourine.
Contrasting with and complimenting Sentient Life, this is the bare bones, minimalist side of my original music.
How did it all begin?
I was first inspired by watching Diesel play a solo acoustic show, and delving into his live solo recordings opened my eyes (and ears) to a stripped back intimate setting, where dynamics and silence are important elements. It drove me to craft my own sound with that same sense of energy and range that you can really only show when it’s just you and the audience.
I began performing solo in 2010, not long after I started playing regular gigs with Outside the SQuare, and I’ve since played more solo shows than any other project.
