I started playing music when I was 15 years old. I began with an old beaten up acoustic guitar a buddy of mine gave me and then started playing drums shortly after, I've also been known to play a bass. As I progressed in music, so did my need for a good band to play some of this music with. Years later I met Ian Johnson who I thought could play a pretty rad keyboard, the music we made together was always so interesting and unlike anything I had heard before. Years went by of just messing around and making cheap demos, but one day I got a call from Ian and he had a drummer ( Paul Mansur ) who was interested in bringing this dream to life. Once Jamie Fong ( vocals ) and Chris Godawski ( bass guitar ) were in the mix, it was like a dream come true.
