PHIL CRUZ

     Hey, I'm Phil, I'm the lead guitarist and singer for the Cruz Brothers.

     I started loving guitar on the game Guitar Hero III back when I was about 7. I was a drummer at the time, but was considerably terrible, as I could not quite keep a straight beat. So my drum teacher told the family that we should consider a switch; me going to guitar, and PJ changing to the drums. Needless to say, this worked extraordinarily well. I started by learning a few of my favorite songs from Guitar Hero, like "Rock You Like A Hurricane," by Scorpion, and "One," by Metallica. I was also listening to bands like The Beatles, Drake Bell, Disturbed, and Avenged Sevenfold at the time, but I've now switched my interests to older bands like Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Eric Clapton.  I love all rock music, essentially. I even love music of different genres like EDM.

     When I'm not swimming in music, I'm actually SWIMMING! I'm on my high school's swim team and I love it. I also like to keep my grades up and play video games. I like skating and snowboarding (although I can't really do it too often since I live in Florida...) as well. Outside of music, I enjoy space studies. I'm interested in many sciences, like Biology and Physics. I'd like to better my understanding of how everything works.
