Music runs in the family. Most of my family play an instrument or sing, and if they don't make music they listen to it. My earliest recollection of loving music was when on long trips in the car my dad would listen to the Dire Staits. That would be the start of my love for music. Later my brother would introduce me to artists like Linkin Park, Green Day, Bon Jovi and Foo Fighters.
When I was about 13, I had a teacher who had a record player in class. My friends and I would stay after school to listen to records with our teacher. We jammed to artists like Aerosmith, Herman Brood and his Wild Romance, and The Rolling Stones (My teacher gave me that very "Love you live" LP as a graduation gift) at the time I didn't realize, but it would be the start of loving to go all out on Rock n' Roll.
At 16 my parents bought me my first instrument; A fender Squire starters pack. For a few years I tried to become a guitarist, but without much success. In the fall of 2015 I went to a local Jam session to play, but since everything that could go wrong with my instrument I decided to put my Squire down and sing. The drummer that I was singing with was Jennifer. That is how we found each other and I became the singer of The Compounds.
I'm greatly influenced by showmen like Mick Jagger, Steven Tyler and Billie Joe Armstrong,
