"I don't know if it was the realization that I was always going to be just an average guitar player, or the fact that I always have an opinion, that got me headed in the songwriting direction. But, for whatever reason, I just got that fire. I was inspired by certain music to try and do a similar thing, and I still am.." Early collaborations with his cousin Dave Price and later on with Mario Noche were also based around writing original music. "Dave was the first person I knew that actually thought about having a "concept" for a song. Being in my early twenties, I thought that was pretty unique." The collaboration with Mario Noche was also a fertile creative period. "I think we both respected each other's songwriting ability and that inspired us to always try and bring something of quality to the table." In 2000 Price recorded his first album of original material, "Bones & Apples." It received airplay in the US and Europe on college and independent radio. He also teamed up with Indiana bluesman, Gordon Bonham to form "The Brains Behind Pa" - a three, sometimes five-piece band inspired by Dylan's songs and influences. "Gordon and I both have a love of Dylan's music and much that inspired him, so we started a side project to kind of explore all of that music." The result was "Old Hat," an EP CD that contained seven traditional, folk and blues songs. It also received airplay, on college and independent radio stations across the US, in Canada and Europe. A songwriter that is in a band inspired by Bob Dylan is bound to take the next logical step - that is, write original music for his band. "It's an obvious extension of what we were exploring in all the old songs and Dylan's music. It was time to apply those qualities that we like in all of that music, to our own music. Carve out our own identity." The resulting album, "Better For The Deal," released in May of 2006, has fifteen original songs and strongly reflects the band's influences. He has continued to perform and record music both with The Brains Behind Pa and other musicians. Price released The Circus & The Gallows 3-song CD single in 2007. In late 2009 he released With the Eye of a Skeptic..., a full-length, acoustic-based CD. "It has received some very warm reviews and radio airplay overseas - mainly in Europe," Price explains. "The reception to this record has been the most positive and extensive that any of my albums have received so far. We've had a couple of reviews in the U.K. and airplay in Ireland which is new territory for my projects." There have also been positive reviews and airplay in Canada, France, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, Italy, Sweden, and Croatia to name a few others, as well as some airplay on independent and college radio in the U.S. Price's music has continued to gather momentum both locally and
