Brett Posch

The year was 2008, a year that would totally change my perspective on music and how it influenced me. In high school, I never was interested in music. In fact, I had no passion for it and can honestly say I never followed or listened to any style of it.

As Christmas rolled around, my parents let me in on a secret that I had a gift I’d never expect. Expecting a nice leather jacket or some kind of sports equipment, I finished opening all my gifts, only to realize none of the gifts were surprising all. Then out of the corner of my eye, I saw my brother come in with a tall box, and right at that moment I knew. My music fanatic brother bought me a guitar. Sure enough, I opened the box to find my first musical instrument ever, a fender squire, cherry coated. From that point on, I decided I was going to attempt to actually learn how to play it. As I learned my instrument, I began to realize I had a natural knack for music. Who would have known?

To make a long story short, here I am 4 years later, actually in a band and part of a full scale album! Music has a funny way of entering your life, and in my case, it actually changed it.
