JARED BUTCHER - Lead Singer, Guitar I come from a family of musicians and artists going back to my grandparents. I first began playing guitar when I was fourteen on a Harmony from Fingerhut. Ha-ha... I played off and on for the next eight years working on techniques, and writing songs. When I was twenty-two I got the chance to put my ideas to work and develop my vocals when I joined my first band, Live Bait. After a couple of years we changed the name to Sickamore. It has taken allot of work and sacrifice from all who have joined this band and I am proud to be a part of it. ADAM - Guitar, Vocals Whatz Up?? I love to play metal music and shred as much as I can. I'm originally from Chicago, the "Windy City" and home of the blues. I am really influenced by the blues and I think it's from all the small clubs I used to frequent back in the day. Been playing in rock, blues, metal and latin bands mostly as a lead guitarist but also as lead vocalist. Stoked to be a part of Sickamore and let it rip ANIMAL - Drummer Growing up in the streets of New York, you had to learn to take care of yourself... and I did. I did everything and anything. I love all kinds music. Salsa, it's in my blood. When I was growing up my parents threw allot of parties and I learned to party hard and fast. Like I said salsa is my first love, but rock 'n roll is my soul. It made me the person I am today, strong, loud, and ready to kick ass. That?s what I'm all about. EVAN - Bass, Vocals I began playing music on the piano when I was 10 years old. I took lessons for three years. By then my ADHD ass just couldn't take being forced to sit still and practice everyday. I started playing the bass guitar in High School when I was offered a spot in a Metallica cover band, all I had to do was get a bass and amp. I spent several years playing in original and cover bands before joining Sickamore. My major influences are Cliff Burton, Steve Harris and Geddy Lee.
