THE STORY:
In October ’94 I moved in with my parents but was quickly kicked out again. I slept in my car for a week then found a twenty-six year old marine who needed a roommate.

During the winter of ’94 I taught myself guitar and I quickly became irritable and frustrated with the entrapment of my surroundings. I found it challenging to think outside the box when many of my friends couldn’t think outside the county line. Songs were my escape. HEAVY MACHINERY turned out to be a much different albun than my first two. I was into Hole at the time and I found myself writing heavier and darker material.

After HEAVY MACHINERY was completed I decided it was time to leave Fredonia. I moved to Buffalo and quickly immersed myself in the open-mic and club circuits. I was another young kid in exile from a small town – chasing big dreams in a city.
