I currently play in Affiance. I am 21 years old and have been playing percussion for 11 years. I started out playing in elementary school with the concert band in 5th grade, and kept playing in jazz and concert bands throughout all of middle, and high school. After graduating high school, I skipped out on going to college, turned 18, and moved to Cleveland, OH to join Affiance, a melodic-metal band that brings back an 80's metal feel with soaring vocals, but keeps it modern with heavy breakdown patterns and fast thrashy riffs. Since then we've been writing and touring non-stop. We've released one full length back in 2010 (No Secret Revealed) and are done with our newest release, which is scheduled to hit stores in November of this year on BulletTooth (Trustkill) Records.
