I’ve always believed a musician’s bio should be written by the artist. It’s hard to comprehend why something so personal would be described in third person. So, I’m Word-P! I create music, sound, rhythm, and noise, because it “moves” me. Music doesn’t require any grand explanation or purpose; its existence is enough.
My lyrical style (as it relates to music) was influenced by my early poetry. Before the studio sessions and shows, I would write for hours to clear my head. Writing gave me a gateway to express suppressed emotions; which was needed when I decided to drop out of Loyola University and work full time. But obviously that type of decision weighs heavy on your heart, because your future seems to get a little blurrier.
Getting in the booth for the first time felt like entering a space craft; and all the unfamiliar lights and gadgets made me feel like, “I’m going to crash this Sh#%!.” But the first time I heard my vocals over a Brian Covelli Production, I knew I would be chasing the feeling I got forever.
In 2009 I started a record label with a childhood friend. We chose the name Turncoat Music, because we knew the major label route wasn’t for us; so in a sense we are rebels against that old music industry model. For us, the possibilities in music (in all areas) are infinite, and I’m having fun exploring! From our entire team: Welcome to our Turncoat reality!
