Full name: Keswick Gallagher
When did you start playing?:
I grew up in a pretty musical household, my mother played guitar & piano and my father had an excess of 800 cds and was always listening to new, exciting and weird music so I was always interested, but I started taking learning and practising seriously when I was 13.
Why did you start playing?:
Seemed like a very good method of expressing myself and engaging my overactive brain.
Describe yourself in 3 words:
Hyperactive, Analytical, Philomath
What is your best trait/ worst habit:
I have a very cautious approach to knowledge and critical inquiry, I will double check and source check basically every news article I read (I’m so fun at parties). I am a constant new project juggler which results in 90% of everything never being finished.
