About Me

My photo
After years of following an acoustic singer/songwriter guitar path, I've decided to go electric. Bringing loops, ebow and multi-stage delays into a largely improvisational mix that ranges from blissfully ambient to full-on psychedelic journeys in sound.

Breaking Light's latest tune is "Tin Man's Tears Flow"

What a Killer

There was one song Neil Young played last night at the Meyerson in Dallas which really hit me. The occasion when a live performance really impacts me emotionally is rare, but this was one. His solo take on Cortez the Killer was incredibly powerful. As I listened to the feedback washes and ringing harmonics of his electric guitar, and his plaintive vocal, I had the feeling that this was the last time I would see Neil live. That, and the subject and beauty of the performance itself left me teary-eyed.

For an inkling, listen to this:
