Without Joy Electric, I might have never made songs or paid attention to melodies. My life could have been a little darker. Possibly the reason why I never went all digital synthesizer crazy (why I own no samplers). A perfect example of man and machine. Something I aspire to.
Simplicity, emotion, and maybe a drum machine. Possibly the reason I even make music. For better or worse.
Ronnie owns the test copy of my first album. Having the opportunity to perform in the same place as him was the first time in my life that I felt like I was doing something right with my music.
Pretentious, but true.
