Donovan Jermyn began playing music at the age of four. However,
whilst learning the piano, he realized the left hand was easier for him
because he was lefty, while right handed pianists struggled to have the same
level of dexterity for both hands. In Junior High School, Donovan began to
expand his venture in music to learning guitar, bass and percussion. As he
entered into High School he became more known throughout his grade for
his musical ability and played with various put-together groups as he refined
his craft. Jermyn holds the practices in his own practice space, a floor
beneath Sub Shop Studios, which is where the band records.
Cameron Leblanc is an up and coming guitarist whose roots are based in blues,
folk, and psychedelic rock, and as of recently, delta blues. He has been playing
guitar from the age of 7, and shows exceptional knowledge and skill in the field
of his instrument(s). He played in a group with Leo Espinoza prior to colliding with
Donovan Jermyn to start pursuing the local rock scene again. Leblanc's capability’s
in the studio reflect his talent just as well as they do live.
