Hi, my name is Jeremy Bassett and this is my biography. I’m originally from Florida but I’ve lived all over the world. Of course I love music and movies, anything in entertainment i enjoy. I have a really artistic family. I’ve been singing since I was a tiny kid, even though i wasn’t really tiny in size. I had a pretty tough life, part of it was brought on me and part of it I brought on myself. But I don’t feel sorry for myself because I’ve been blessed in countless ways. If you really want to know more about me, listen to my voice when I sing. Hopefully for the next years to come there will be many opportunities when i can express myself emotionally through music, which is basically why I do this. Skyrocket Love to me is a great band and I hope you will feel the same as we progress and mature and give ourselves to you. It’s too hard to sum up your life in a paragraph as I’m sure most of you agree. So, let’s just meet each other.
Hi I’m Merritt. I grew up in Iowa City, Iowa and lived there most of my life. I got into music pretty early on; first choir and then the piano a few years later when I was 12. I started seriously writing when I was 18 and having a rough time when I was a freshman in college, but I’ve been hearing melodies in my head ever since I can remember. Music is the outlet for all the good things and the bad things in my life.
Hi, My name is Jeff Maddox….Drummer for Skyrocket Love. I was born in Virginia and spent 5 years in Atlanta, Georgia. My family and I moved to California when I was a little kid. Music has always been a big part of my life. From the first time I heard the rhythmic brilliance that is Led Zeppelin, I knew I had to play the drums. I started taking lessons at a local music store when I was 14 and joined my first band shortly thereafter. I have been influenced by many genres of music. Everything from Rock, Pop, Metal, R&B……. You name it, I played it.
I attended the Musicians Institute in Hollywood to refine my drumming. I studied under some of the best drummers in the country and learned much from them.
I joined Skyrocket Love right out of school and have enjoyed every second of it. I’m looking forward to the future with, who I think, is the Best Damn band in the world!!
My name is Curtis and i play bass in skyrocket love. I was born and raised in Southern California and currently live in Agoura Hills. Ever since I was little, I have been drawn towards all types of music. When I was 13, I learned to play guitar and started writing songs. Throughout middle and high school, I was in a few bands and started playing shows locally. During that time, i also worked with Grammy Award winning producer, KC Porter at his studio. I spent two years there and gained a lot of valuable experience with recording, engineering, producing and music business. Not too long after high school, I started playing bass and found my way into an audition for Skyrocket Love.
Hi, I’m Russ Nelson, the guitarist of Skyrocket Love. I grew in Butte, Montana, and I’m damn proud of it! At 8 years old, my uncle, John Montoya, began teaching me how to play guitar and sing. Later on, I picked up the drums playing in the high school band, however, I wasn’t your average “bando.” I hold bodybuilding titles and state records in powerlifting in the fine state of Montana. I came out to Hollywood to pursue my dreams in music. After while, I hooked up with Skyrocket Love. They are a great bunch of guys and damn good musicians. I’ve been having one hell of a good time gigging with them.
