Name: Cyric Naseth
From: Pittsburgh, PA
Function: Guitar
Age: 25

"At the age of 7, I first heard a live symphony perform the themes to both "Back To The Future" and "Raiders of the Lost Ark". I was in absolute awe of the power of the music being performed live, and the rush it gave me to not only hear it, but to feel it. That was the first time I recall music affecting me emotionally, and ever since, I have felt an urgent need to not only feel it again, but to find a way to pass that feeling along to others. This is what I know of addiction.
As the years passed and I got older, I listened to as much music as possible and I tried to share my enthusiasm with others. Listening was never enough, it was only a gateway to more involvement. For the same reason that we can't just watch a magic trick without wondering "How is that possible?", I could no longer listen to music without wanting to get my hands dirty. I needed to make music somehow, bad music if that was all I could manage, but preferably music that had the power to inspire emotions in others. So that's what I try to do. I strive to make music in the image of that symphony that had such an effect on me so many years ago. I want people to crave the feeling I felt that first time, I want them to need it, and I want to be the one to give them their fix."
