I started playing bass and producing at age 19. I have been singing my whole life.
What was the first concert you ever went to?
My first concert was with my dad and we saw U2 in Madison Square Garden in 2005. It was pretty epic especially since it was my first concert ever.
What gear do you use?
My bass is an Aslin Dane and my amp is Peavy. My MIDI program is Acoustica Mixcraft 5.0.
Who was your biggest musical influence growing up?
As a kid, honestly my biggest influence was the Spice Girls. I love them like nobody's business. I owned all their albums, posters, Barbie dolls, you name it.
Are you in a band? Have you been in bands?
Yes I've been in one band. We all meet in school and we made electronica music. I was the bassist and we had a keyboardist and a singer. We had no live drummer which proved to be problematic. We did play shows in CT and NYC and we even participated in a contest for Radio 104.1 in the summer of 2010.
If you could jam with anyone, who would it be?
Billy Corgan. He is by far my biggest influence and I worship the Smashing Pumpkins ;). He is enormously gifted, both in his music and singing abilities, and he is extremely versatile when it comes to music genres.
What's the biggest audience you ever performed to? What's the smallest?
The biggest audience was with my old band when we did a Battle of the Bands at the Heirloom Arts Theatre. Besides that we did mostly bars and clubs.
You're stuck on a desert island and only get to bring one album with you. What do you pick?
Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. No competition. The music is beatiful and I love the conceptual theme behind the album.
