Aaron Lee Tasjan: 
Judy Was A Punk Jesus Freak

The songwriter, guitarist and producer grew up in the middle of the middle, central Ohio, USA. It was there he learned to play the guitar and by the age of 16, had performed with Peter Yarrow and made his first trip to New York City where he was given the Outstanding Guitarist Award by The Essentially Ellington Competition at Lincoln Center. Though a full scholarship to the Berklee College Of Music was offered to him following his high school graduation, he chose to return to New York City instead and it was there he met up with Justin, Cole and Dan to form the band Semi Precious Weapons. As SPW began performing around NYC, Tasjan caught the eye of Drivin’ N’ Cryin’s front man Kevn Kinney who had just relocated to Brooklyn. Kinney subsequently took Tasjan on many tours as both a guitarist and opening act and became a mentor to Tasjan guiding him towards the revelation that in music, you never have to be defined by one sound or genre. This idea would shape the form of Tasjan’s own music significantly over the next few years.
