    Bio:

    A Boston native, in 2006, Dark & Stormy first began experimenting with various genres and methods of producing electronic music. Having limited exposure of this type of music on late night radio mix shows, he called upon his experience writing music for various bands and produced his first electronic songs with a mini-korg, an 808, and a 4 track mixer, blending many elements of electronic music without limits. While his music is most typically classified as Tech House, influences of many other genres, including Rock and Punk, make his work stand out in a sea of commonality.

    Dark & Stormy says of production, ?Music has always been this cathartic sort of effort for me, especially playing guitar. But it took on its own form when I was producing and djing. I would produce with a lot more light heartedness, which I really enjoy. I feel like years of punk bands had given me a different sort of attitude toward production but I still do strive for perfection. I feel like this attitude towards things is a lot different from my peers. Where some other producer may go sit in their studio and tell themselves, ok it's time to make music, I'm more likely to pull a midi controller out of my backpack and write a song on a bus back from a gig in NYC.'

    His production technique has evolved and developed into a sound that he can distinctively call his own. One of his goals is to have someone hear one of his songs for the first time, regardless of sub genre, and say ?THAT is Dark & Stormy'.
