Purple Look Play
A mix of old school pop, rock, rhythm and blues.
There is a meaning behind the name Purple Look Play. Purple is an important color representative of ambition, independence and creativity. I am influenced by a wide range of musical genre: music from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, Motown, Rhythm and Blues, Rock, Punk, Pop, Synth.....and Country. In the future it will become obvious each Purple Look Play project has a different flavor; I will not be constrained by style boundaries often dictated by a record companies. Look is that 'lens' I use when writing and recording music; I have a way I view the world and I put a personal stamp on music recorded by Purple Look Play. Last and not least is the term Play. I credit my sister for that word, but in fact that is really what i do and what we do in Purple Look Play. A vital part of making music is playing instruments and singing, but playing also encompasses having fun, and that, is the main reason I make music.
