Currently residing in Bend, OR THECLECTIK has played in various styles of bands on multiple instruments since the start of his musical journey. Guitar, Drums, Keyboards were a main outlet of creativity, later to be armed with the MPC 2000. All instruments are typically self-produced unless otherwise noted.
Dusty vinyl and his ability to create songs by ear led him to produce similar to his influences Massive Attack, DJ Shadow, Portishead, and the Gorillaz. Heavily influenced by the early rave culture, hip-h, and the constant blooming of music’s ever-changing nature, THECLECTIK furthered his songwriting techniques and merged his love for all styles birthing the moniker THECLECTIK. Emo rock hop, as he puts it, at times is his mashed-up take on the artistic world.
Ethereal delicate sounds, sweeping electronic textures, melodic synths fused with gritty dark or funky guitar riffs. His creations ride the pulse of hip-hop styled beats, retro sounds, and flairs of electronica. With features from MC’s, Vocalists, and lending his own vocal styles, THECLECTIK combines the worlds he was brought up on to create his unique style.
“Am I punk? Am I funk? Am I hip hop or soul?” as one of his lyrics ring out, he ties in everyday struggles with a positive outlook. Lyrics like “so fight the good fight our worth is our right” and “everything is right where it should be” is an example of a light-hearted nature his music conveys.
