Gareth Campbell discovered his passion for music in 4th grade when he started playing viola.
Influenced by bands like Maroon 5, Disturbed, and Bad Wolves, he quickly learned he had a musical ear and developed his skills until college, when took a break to study engineering and start a career. After spending years in engineering and automotive retail, he decided to pick up music again during the pandemic. Singing was something he always enjoyed, so he sought out the online classes that producer Justine Blazer was offering. Justine extended the opportunity to write and record music at her studio (Ten7Teen).
