About Us

Graeme began his interest in music with private piano lessons at 5 years old. Very early on he showed a disposition toward
learning music by ear and formulating his own chord
progressions to write songs. In the third grade his interests
branched into drum lessons through the school music program
and in junior high he futher branched out and began to teach
himself guitar.

During high school he played guitar with his garage band NFS.
He recorded a release, titled \"Consider This\", under the
moniker GGX. The release consisted mostly of songs played
by NFS, but also contained a couple studio-only tracks. In 1994
Graeme also joined a more established band Disciple, a
Christian rock band which played for church youth groups and
events across New York state and Pennsylvania (not to be
confused with the band signed by Columbia records).

As Graeme entered college, he continued to play with Disciple
and recorded with the band on their only release, \"Road To
Forever\". He also began to take an interest in audio production
and digital recording. Graeme recorded projects for several
local musicians as well as a second, unreleased GGX project
titled \"Garmonbozia\" in 1999.

It was about that time that Graeme left college and the
members of Disciple moved on to other things. Graeme began
a 4-year career as a long-haul and then regional truck driver.
During the early part of that career he wrote the material that
became Revelation Project. That band was originally formed to
play a one-time showcase at the Kingdom Bound music
festival at the Darien Lake amusement park (now Six Flags).
After that showcase, several of the band wished to make things
more permanent. So Revelation Project continued with
Graeme playing lead guitar. They recorded the tracks in
Graeme's growing home studio and released their self-titled
CD in 2005.

During that time Revelation Project had the privilege of
appearing on compilation projects CPR (Christian Progressive
Rock) volumes 1 and 2. The CPR projects included other local
artists, as well as national names such as Neal Morse and
Proto Kaw (featuring Kerry Livgren formerly of Kansas).

In late 2006 Revelation Project called it quits, and in 2007
Graeme moved to the Kansas City area, where he currently
resides. He more actively pursued other interests and hobbies
until, in November 2011, he felt compelled to write the song
\"Unseen Power\". Doing so reignited his musical fire and
began to embark on his newest solo project, \"Portrait of a
Zebra\".
