Symphony North is a band/music project I've had since my senior year in high school. It combines my love of storytelling with my love of rich, powerful music, all in an effort to tell a Christmas story.
I have conceived a number of Christmas albums. The first of these is The Bell Ringer, which I've just released. In fact, we've staged the show and done some regional touring. We garnered initial representation by WME based on fan response, and are now looking to grow the show and all the related aspects, including a novel, film discussion, and more.
The music is a mixture of my love of soaring vocals, anthemic orchestrations, powerful rhythms, and groups like Mannheim Steamroller and Trans-Siberian Orchestra. In fact, the album features several former members of Trans-Siberian Orchestra, not to mention current members of the band Dream Theater:
From Trans-Siberian Orchestra
Tim Hockenberry (also an America's Got Talent semi-finalist)
From Dream Theater
Jordan Rudess (voted by Radar Music Mag as the Greatest Keyboardist of All Time)
Part of what makes us so distinctive is my lifetime of storytelling, which I use to build the shows from top to bottom.
