Jekyl / Bio

Jekyl has been playing music for over 15 years, picking up his first bass guitar at the age of 13. After spending countless hours teaching himself how to play by ear, he finally went on his first audition for a band called Bottom Floor, for which he was offered the job. This was a short lived high school project, however, and Jekyl soon found himself in other projects, PK Hypocrite, and Disarray (DKA), to name just a couple. After high school is when things got really serious, and Jekyl found himself in a band called Circle of Scorn, which was nominated for several of the 2002 Orlando Metal Awards, including Best Metal Band and Best Bassist (Jekyl). COS was also featured in some underground BMX videos, that were straight to home releases. Following the departure of their lead vocalist, the band stuck together, chose a new name, and recruited a new vocalist, and another guitarist for added girth. Pulse Nein was the result, and the band made a lot of local noise, playing large venues like the House of Blues Orlando, Hard Rock Live Orlando, and Hard Rock Legends Ft. Lauderdale. Although offered recording contracts with local labels, the band was unsatisfied with the offers and decided to go it independent for a while longer, based on the string reaction to their first (and only official) release, The Task at Hand. After more than two years together, though, some of the members decided to go their own ways, leaving a hole in the Orlando music scene. So, in 2006, Jekyl went on another audition, this time for local Alternative Rock group Audiology, and was also offered this job based on professionalism and talent. As the newest member of Audiology, Jekyl was fortunate enough to play such venues as Jannus Landing St. Petersburg, Hard Rock Hotel Orlando, Orlando CityWalk, and the Hard Rock Live once again. The band had positive reactions from several record labels, and professional producers, but reached their end in 2008. Since then, Jekyl has been working in several projects, focusing more on production, and mastering, as well as getting into management for a short time. With the release of Pieces of Me in 2010, Jekyl has become the latest in a long line of band mates turned solo artists, and hopes to spread his joy for music to many more listeners as long as he has the ability to do so. He is also looking to help out other local unsigned artists as much as possible, and encourages them to email with questions (mastering, logos, even mixing when possible). With eagerness and new material in the works, Jekyl looks forward to a bright future full of great music of all genres.
