Hi Brendan!  Thank you again for taking the time to do an interview with us!

Where can we find your website?

www.BrendanBurns.com

Tell me about your website? What kind of content can we find on your page?

My website is the official source for my upcoming performances and projects.  I keep static info about guitar lessons and my debut album TimeStamp.  I also give monthly updates about gigs and important works.

When & how did you start playing the guitar?

I started playing guitar as a teenager.  In grade school I played trumpet and then took a few years off before discovering the guitar.  I attended Berklee College Of Music and graduated Class of 1998.

Oh wow!  Berklee College of Music is such an amazing school!  

How would you describe your music?

My music is stretches across a wide range of styles.  I have great love for country, jazz and pop music and I think they all come out equally in my compositions.

What is your favorite original piece? Is it available for download online?

My favorite piece is C/B Tune (available on BandCampiTunes & Spotify).  It’s a very simple composition that relies heavily on group improvisation.  I love listening to the band create the tune with me.

If you could choose to play music with any artist in history, who would it be with, and why?

Bach for sure.  I think his work is incredibly fascinating and I would love to see what he was like in person.  Plus, the guitar wasn’t a serious instrument in his time.  I like to show him some things that it can do.

How long have you been using DreamHost?

Technically, I don’t know.  Probably since early 2000′s.

Do you use any tools in the DreamHost panel? If so, which ones?  

I use and rely on the “One-Click Installs.”  I have WordPress setup on automatic upgrade, and that’s about all I need from my website.

Do you have any suggestions for DreamHost? Anything you would like to see, use, or change?

No.  Things are pretty cool.

Why do you love DreamHost?

I love DreamHost because they are attentive and sensitive to the evolving needs of the web for their customers.  As the function of a website has changed over the past 15 years, I can rely on DreamHost to provide the necessary tools to help me build an audience, broadcast my music and advertise my teaching practice.

If you could have any superhero powers, what would it be, and why?

I would like to fly.  It would make commuting so much fun!
