Hello, my history playing music isn't consistent. I was taught violin but never excelled and focused around 3-4 years old. I started playing saxophone when instruments were introduced in the school curriculum at about 10 or 11 years old. I played it for the school band and eventually started playing in their percussion section as well by 13 or 14. I got a bass guitar handed down from an uncle at that age and started thinking a rock band would be cooler so I played bass guitar and learned a little upright for my high school band. I took some music theory near the end of high school at the local community college but wasn't focused enough to pass.
I spent a lot of time outside of class trying to learn my favorite bass lines by ear through high school and after graduation. I also began learning Logic Pro after I graduated high school. I took more college classes focusing on production but I wasn't being taught anything 'cool' enough to care. I got the gist of midi, the recording process, and some theory but I haven't memorized modes and the number of wires and boxes I'd need to record vocals and drums.
I mostly enjoyed playing.
I've learned recently that I may not have had the best teachers for music production but am persistent in learning on my own.
I strongly believe that chemistry and humility is necessary to produce great material.
I also believe it only takes one amazing song.
I wouldn't feel comfortable playing music I didn't really find promising at a gig so I haven't played much live.
I'd love to compose and record a track that I find confidence in before performing live.

I really enjoy a lot of 'generic stuff' on the radio if it doesn't seem like a blatant money grab or ripoff.
Oh yeah I like listening to Eminem but it's not like I've tried to write beats like his or anything.
