Kingspin is my alter ego for music production. I released my first record (under a different name) by the time I was 15 years old. It was weird finding some success at an early age. I remember getting hounded by the A&R guys at Hollywood Records and thinking they were some small town operation with a cheesy name. I found out later they were with Disney. It wasn’t much better though. I don’t think we were the “Disney” type of teenage band. Not that we were unruly or rebellious. We just saw ourselves as more “real” than that at the time. We wanted to be our version of bands like New Order, OMD and The Smiths.
