My name is Memphis and I'm a PISCES. A bodacious "baterista" (drummer) straight out of the Bay Area - you won't find another like me.
February 21, 2008 is when I made my mark in the world. From an early age, I’ve always loved music. How do I know? As a baby in my carseat, I used to fill with excitement at the intro of “Pretty Wings” by Maxwell. Ever since then, it's been on and poppin' (literally on the drums).
The first time I got on a set of drums - it was love at first play. I was 4 years old and my foot barely reached the bass drum pedal. I had to stand while I "punched" it. Times have changed, and the power I posses now is like a roaring thunder.
Legend has it, the only way to have heard me sing as a child was to catch me in the act unknowingly. If I saw you, I went silent. Gratefully, I outgrew that nonsense and you'll find me singing constantly, no matter what I'm doing.
I give all thanks and glory to God for blessing me with such talents and abilities to sing and drum. From the many opportunities to sing and play in the church over the years and at a multitude of events, I don't take for granted that this won't last forever.
I’m truly blessed to have my three siblings: Micaiah, Matthias and Mercy (another drummer in the making) not only because of the love and care they show towards me but also because they are OUTSTANDING musicians, They also make for great competition.
My passion, you ask? I want to share my gifts and talents with the world. God didn't give me these gifts to sit on or hoard to myself.
When I'm not in music mode, I enjoy spending time with my family, photography, learning Spanish, playing the bass, painting, cooking, baking and of course, EATING. Now that you know basically everything about me, I hope you will join this musical adventure with me.
