BANIC was born and raised in Tampa Bay, Florida.  He still lives there to this day.  BANIC was raised by his parents an Air Force pilot and an artist.  He loved the sound of the guitar at a young age.   His uncle and brother showed him the musicians that would form his dream of being a songwriter.  A few of those artists are Eric Clapton, David Coverdale, Hank Williams, Bill Withers, Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan, and Jim Croce among others and many more since. 

He started playing guitar freshman year of high school and played his first show that year.  He actually lettered in guitar.  He loved to play but could never find his place.  He has had many almost bands, mostly failed to his music integrity.  He stopped playing and was more of a listener and helped other musicians with their sound and security.

He started writing a few songs in 2001 when he was given the name BANIC.  He did one show at Insomnia Coffee House.  Then he met the love of his life and got married with his two beautiful girls.   He put his guitar down and lived the domestic life.

Then one day he picked up his guitar and was playing around trying to play those old songs.  When his oldest daughter walked up to him and asked him to play a song and started to sing along.  He saw that his daughter had the same love of music he did at the same age.  Due to this experience he wrote a song for her “My Favorite Song”.

He looked back on those old songs and was playing around with them and noticed they told a story.  Due to this he decided to actually do his dream and be a musician.  Those songs ended up being his debut Blue Butterfly EP.  He started to do a few shows at a coffee shop and did the radio program Center Stage with RJ. 

Now do to the great feedback he got on the EP that he recorded and played all the instruments on.  He is now working on his first full length album.  His name is not known now, but he plans and doing more shows and getting in front of his growing fan base the BANIC SQUAD.  So stay tuned for the next installment of the BANIC MUSIC story.
