Nick Longpre – (Guitar & Lead Vocals, 19 years old) – Nick has been passionately devoted to improving his musical abilities since first picking up the guitar at an early age. Nick plays from a background of both traditional and contemporary blues music, and counts guitar players Stevie Ray Vaughan, Colin James, and Eric Clapton among his biggest inspirations.
Aiden Currie – (Drums & Backing Vocals, 16 years old) – Although only beginning to play the drums midway through his life, Aiden has quickly matured into a consummate and talented musician. Aiden’s drumming is a unique blend of progressive, reggae and jazz styles, and he lists Nick Mason, Mike Clark, and Phil Collins as his biggest influences.
Brandon Ziola – (Bass, Backing Vocals & Keyboards, 22 years old) –Though equally at home on multiple instruments, Brandon’s bass playing is his strongest proficiency. Brandon’s musical background is based around blues, rock and country music, and he is most influenced by Dusty Hill, Tommy Shannon and John Entwistle.
