Not sure Bill, but I believe this is all about search values. In

so much what you really think you SOUND like, but who you think people
might search for that are looking for music like yours.
I completely agree and, though you had a lot of Jeff Beck influence in
your early playing, I don't think people going to look for Jeff Beck
go looking for the kind of music you are playing currently. Torn
would, however, be someone who I could see compared to music LIKE yours.
In a way, similarly, Eivin Aarset would be a good reference
point...............because there is a lot of ambient influence in your
sound, combined, of course,
with a lot of rhythmic stuff, too, someone like Steve Roach might be
So yeah, I agree with Richard's assesment: it's about who's music
would 'go well' with what you do and not 'who do you sound like' or
what influences do you have.
