Music has been a big part of my life for a long time, growing up a percussionist and teaching myself piano, guitar, and bass to varying degrees of success. I also have a bachelor's degree in Music Composition and love cats.

Living life as a musical, Jen bursts into song at a moment's notice - much to the delight and/or horror of those ambushed by the sound. Jen grew up singing in choirs and bands in her church days and throughout her school years.

I have been singing and playing guitar since late 2016, and I really love jazz, grunge, indie, and oldies music. My biggest musical influences are Amy Winehouse, Elliott Smith, Nick Drake, and Nirvana. I really love CSC because it really feels like a community, rather than just a group of musicians playing together.

I have played music since 1996. I started with eight years of classical piano, then ventured to three years of jazz piano and jazz theory, and two years of pipe organ. I have been taking voice lessons since 2020. I enjoy playing many music styles, but I primarily write alternative hard rock music.

I have been playing drums since 2018 and have loved every second of it! I have a very wide range of music that I enjoy, but my two favorite genres are punk/garage rock (specifically “angry girl music of the indie rock persuasion”) and 1970s soul/R&B/funk.

I have loved music ever since I purchased the Weird Al in 3D cassette as a kid. I started playing guitar in high school and have been playing in bands since then. I am open to all musical styles but lean towards the rockier type stuff or goofy 80s songs. In between learning songs for our CSC gigs, I like working on original songs.

Guitar

I'm originally from Rockville, Maryland and grew up playing drums on and off in middle school and high school. After high school, I took a decade off from playing music until 2020, where I was looking for a new hobby after the pandemic. Since then I have taken up the keyboard, the guitar, and other percussion instruments.

Drums, Keys, Guitar

Self-taught amateur drummer who started to play with chopsticks as sticks and pillows as Toms. I’ve always gravitated towards drums or broader percussion in any song and that made me want to try and playing it on my own.

Tara’s full name in Urdu translates to “melody,” so it makes sense that singing came naturally to her at a young age. Her earliest musical influences were from her parents’ love of 80’s pop, Bollywood, and country music— and everything in between.
