Story behind your band/artist name: There's not really a story. Caleb Hacker is my actual name. At one point I thought of changing it to Caleb Rekcah. Rekcah being my actual last name spelled backwards, but after some wise advice from several close friends I decided to stick with the name I was given at birth.
Band Members: Caleb Hacker, Guitar
What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : I currently live in Lorton, VA only about 20 minutes from D.C.
At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: 1. The first show I ever played, just me and my guitar, was in DC for a breast cancer event. I was 18 at the time.
2. One of my favorite artist is Brandy and earlier this year I got to meet her, for the first time, at the Kennedy Center in DC. Not only did I get to meet her but I sang for her and recorded it so i get to relive that awesome moment over and over again. It's posted on my Instagram and YouTube channel.
3. My granddad was the fifth black admiral in the US Navy and a has a display honoring him, along with several other prominent black military officers, in the Pentagon.
Anything else we should know, or you want to share: I post a lot of covers on my Instagram and YouTube channel and i've had some pretty awesome artist see my covers and give me a shout out. From Snoop Dogg and Meghan Trainor (she actually posted my cover of her song "Lips Are Movin" on her Instagram page) to Erik Hassle and T-boz of TLC.
