Born in July, 1966 in the small town of Sturgis, Michigan,
my parents were always playing the stereo, so I was
immersed in music at an early age. My parents decorated
the wall of the family room with album covers from floor to
ceiling. It was pretty cool (by the 70's standard). I used to
turn on the stereo and play the air guitar surrounded by
the faces on the album covers. My mother then decided
to buy me a used guitar and amplifier. Never taking any
lessons, I fiddled around (made noise) with the guitar with
little success.
In 1978 I moved to Montague, Michigan to live with my
father.  At that time I started my vocal experience by
taking chorus for part of my school curriculum. Later in my
high school years I started to expand my vocal
experience by participating in after school activities such
as musicals, barber shop quartet, and other school
related vocal groups.
When I was in the 11th grade, a guy in my school was
going to start a band. So I went to his house with my
guitar and amp. After a short while, we determined that I
really didn't know how to play. He decided tho show me
how to play Judas Priest's "Breakin' the law". He never
called to say I was in the band, but another spark had
ignited a desire to learn to play the guitar well. A few
years later, my friend and current Onager drummer
"Aaron Bryan", decided we would start a band and that
band is Onager. The rest is history!
Many people have asked how we got the name "Onager",
well here is the story. When we first started, we couldn't
agree on what name to call the band. So, we decided to
do it the fair way. We took a dictionary, opened it  and put
a finger on the page. The word underneath that finger
was "Onager"!
