FAVOURITE ALBUM

“Tom Waits - Bone Machine. This record was very ahead of its time, combining Waits' raspy voice with obscure percussion. Blues and Western guitar had a huge influence on me musically and continues to. The songs are beautiful love stories, yet the gravel of his voice adds a tough and raw coating to the overall listening experience.”
