One of the quirkiest and most idiosyncratic groups to emerge from the early 2000's gothic folk scene, You And Me Falconry are not so much gothic in sound as in strategy. They subvert conventional pop/rock methods by stripping both song construction and instrumentation to its essence. The hauntingly spacious sound is made both more intimate and foreboding by coolly intoned, almost neutral vocals. Pop minimalism of the first order. Needless to say, they are also quite resistant to widespread commercial success, although they have quickly attracted a cult following.
Born in the midst of the Caribbean, I grew up with the mentality of a survivor. While music was always echoing in the back of my mind, I knew the only way to assure my survival was through education. So I excelled at school, not because I was smart but it was my only option. Eventually, I started to write poetry to express myself, depict my surroundings and sometimes to conquer a girl's heart. I really had no leisure time, still don't, because when you waste time it wastes you. Other than poetry, I would write stories, read a book or draw. I tried to keep myself busy and out of trouble, yet trouble found me. As far as music goes, I'm influenced by different music genres from REGGAE, ROCK N ROLL, HEAVY METAL, CLASSICAL MUSIC, SOUL, and of course RAP, HIP HOP and many more. Currently, I'm in pursuing a degree in Psychology, and minor in Art at FAU. I do invest heavily in my rhymes...I would like to think that I am doing it for the love of the art and not for the extrinsic reward. Because once Money is the first priority it's mostly likely we are going to self-destruct. I have had some hard times in my life, like many folks, I have overcome them and ready to move on. And, hm....life goes on. I can't front or brag...because what's in the darkness will eventually come out in the light...and that's real.
