Story behind your band/artist name: Just me, myself, and I. I started performing in the DMV area 5 years ago. Originally from New York, I played in a few different bands but started performing solo in 2010. I have just always loved music and will continue to do it in one form or another, whether it be as a Solo artist or in a group.
Band Members: Steve - Vocals, 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 live in Northern Virginia
At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: 1) I have performed at the Giant National Capital BBQ battle in DC for the last two years
2) My wife won tickets to the Ed Sheehan concert two years ago in the Verizon Center and we got to meet him. During the meet and greet I totally froze up and really couldn't say anything that made any sense. (Ed must remember the incident) My wife face-timed with our sons so they got the chance to say hi to Ed, too.
3) My song, Someone Special, has been used by some family, friends and strangers as their Wedding Song. It's a very humbling feeling to have people ask if they could use a song you've written for such a special occasion.
