Master of Aught, Purveyor of Melody
Who is Riffster?
My artist name is Riffster. It was a name that my band mates gave me back in high school and I’ve kept it ever since. I’ve been playing & composing music for over 25 years. It’s my true passion. I started playing guitar when I was very little and never lost the hunger for music. I’ve composed several scores for small indie films/videos and written a few jingles over the years.
Style? No, not really. . .
I will try almost anything once. My main my passion is guitar based music. I like to play as loud as my amps will let me, but I still leave room for softer, more melodic music. My style is a mix of Rock, Blues, R&B, Techno, Industrial, Classical and some Jazz. All of my songs start with the guitar and work outward from there (sometimes on a guitar synth). I play several instruments, but the heart and soul of my music is guitar. My understanding of music and it’s theories comes from learning and playing guitar. I enjoy creating music that is outside my normal realm. Nothing is out of the question. My music crosses over many genres. I enjoy all types of music. Any opportunity to collaborate with other musicians is welcome.
You can listen to some of my guitar rock tracks on my acid planet page. Some of these are also for sale on Audio Jungle.
Thank you for supporting my music,
