I live in Berlin, NH with my wife and kids, am a Christian, work from home, and enjoy sightseeing.
I was born in Berlin NH, I started playing guitar when I was 12 after seeing the movie La Bamba and thinking Ritchie Valens carrying around a guitar was the coolest thing ever.
I was heavily influenced by the Berlin Music Scene back then. Dave Duchesne And his music shop where he would always have his guitar out. His bands were always playing local shows. Brian Demers, Kevin Roy and Matt Theberge were all my musical heroes at that time.
I joined the metal band Heavinsight when I was 15 years old and we played out regularly for about 7 years.
Throughout all of it, I've always recorded my own music and was fortunate enough to have very supportive parents who built me a studio and let me have all the instruments I could want. I play a bit of everything, or enough of everything to record my own songs.
I've since moved into a place and built a much more modern studio. These days I focus on building guitars and recording my original songs as well as booking the studio to bands that need quality recordings. Studio is called Castle Studio NH

In recent years I've been inspired by musicians like Kurt Cobain, Ed Sheeran and Gary Clark Jr. As a musician my goal is to do the best I can to inspire other people by showing them that through entertainment there are better ways to deal with depression.

Topps latest release, ''Say Yes or Say No''.
A piano-driven vocal House banger, ''Say Yes or Say No'' possesses all the right elements for infiltrating charts and club sound systems alike. Heavily influenced by the 90s and early-2000s Dance sound, the catchy and universal song was written by Topps and produced by Celmaw of Celmaw Records. This sound is a new direction for Topps, having previously released Afro-swing and Hip-Hop music.
Speaking of his release, Topps said:
“I am very pleased to be releasing this single, I had a great time writing and recording it .” says Topps. ‘Say Yes or Say No’ marks the start of me venturing into the House genre. This year will be the year of multiple releases by myself and I couldn’t think of a better song to be kicking off my new direction with than ‘Say Yes or Say No’. I worked on the song with Celmaw of Celmaw Records and after talking through past life experiences we started working on something that I immediately loved. By the time I laid the vocal down I think we knew we had something special. In 2023 I intend to take my career and my music to the next level. I love what I do passionately, and I hope you love this single and the music I have coming this year as much as I do!”
"I loved it the minute it dropped through my inbox and I thought, that's going to get airplay" Dean Jackson of BBC Music Introducing - East Midlands

Welcome to SYTERIA WORLD. A realm of colourful, pounding and punked-melodic rock that is occupied by Yorkshire -bred band Syteria, who return this coming August 11 with their third album SYTERIA WORLD via Cargo.
Formed by Jackie ‘Jax’ Chambers, of the legendary UK rockers Girlschool, alongside Argentine siblings Julia and Pablo Calvo, and Steph Dawson, with previous albums Rant-O-Bot and Reflection, and a host of tours and festival appearances, Syteria have established themselves as a force to be reckoned with.
The Syteria sound mixes elements of modern pop/punk energies with more contemporary rock anthemic choruses, incorporating four-part harmonies and using the ancient Solfeggio scale of recording in 432hz, instead of the standard 440hz, to leave you feeling in tune with the universe.
The debut album, Rant-O-Bot received an award nomination and was shortlisted to the final five at the ‘Independent Music Awards’, as well as ranking highly in many online voting polls for best band in various categories. The follow up album, Reflection, was released in 2020, just before the pandemic, supported by countless of stunning reviews.
Back now with Syteria World, the band have crafted an introspective album that explores the ups and downs of life through twelve tracks of powerful guitar riffs, pounding beats, and catchy choruses. The songs touch on a range of themes, from chasing dreams and overcoming fears to dealing with breakups and social media monsters. There’s a sense of maturity and wisdom in the lyrics and music that marks a significant step forward for the band.
One of the most striking features of Syteria World is the honesty and vulnerability in the lyrics. Tracks like ‘Chasing Dreams’and ‘Breaking Through’ explore personal struggles and the journey towards self-discovery. Similarly, ‘It’s a Mess’ confronts the chaos of the world head-on, while ‘Debt Generation’ takes a critical look at consumerism and societal pressures.
The album showcases the band’s versatility and range, with each track offering a unique take on the challenges and joys of life. From the bitter frustration of ‘E.M.P.T.Y.’ to the celebratory spirit of ‘Raise Your Glass,’ this is an album that will have you singing along and nodding in agreement.

WHAT THE PRESS SAY ABOUT ARCTIC LIGHTS
‘A whirlwind of indie melodic pop, carefully crafted song writing, catchy bass lines and distorted guitars’ — Hot Press
‘As a radio show presenter, Arctic Lights is one of those bands you know you're going to play the moment the new music is released, and keep playing them. They're easily producing some of the best indie driven rock music around right now.’ — Mike Mc Mahon Dundalk FM
‘Every now and then we come across a band that’s really special’
‘Spellbllindly-catchy indie rock from Ireland.’ — Michael Carr, 96fm
‘Musically diverse, Arctic Lights are an all-consuming affair that seduce the senses and broods in the underworld of demi-gods of love, lust and transformation. They are a colourful rumble of power pop, space-rock, baroque-rock and synth-pop that soar, explode and collide with the dream-pop bubbles of Indie-rock. — The Manc Review
'Belong' builds further into a cacophony of musical chaos all the while the vocals don't waver in their raspy whispered state. The track has a Shoegaze, noise rock stance similar to My Bloody Valentine or early Boo Radleys, the words hard to define against the bellowing music underlying them. A track to fully immerse yourself in, letting the noise totally consume you. — Click Roll and Boom UK
