Akeru- A Japanese word with multiple meanings such as: to open, to unwrap, to unlock, to grow light, and to end. These are words that sum up many reasons why I want to share my music and make music with the purpose of giving it a soul and a life of its own.

A little bit about me: At a young age music has been with me as long as I remember. The foundation of my musical palette is an exhausting wide range. My appreciation for all types of music, growing up hearing the music of Motown, the music of the British Invasion, to my childhood of Electronic and New Wave music. As a musician, writer, artist, and producer I find myself melting a wide range of elements from rock, hip hop, dance and electronica. I don't like to stick to a specific style or be pigeoned into a sound. What Akeru means to me from an artistry standpoint is to open the light and your ears to new sounds. New ways to listen and enjoy music that can't be define. As the music industry goes through it's next evolution so too will be the music I write, the things that inspire me to sit with a keyboard, guitar, or even a bucket. Inspirations come from all sorts of unsuspected places. I hope that taking a listen you will be inspire in whatever shape or form.
