The Ground Above is a name to follow.BACKGROUND:In 2007 I heard that my brother Julian wanted to play guitar. Well, naturally being the older brother, I decided I wasn't going to let him outdo me! (T he nerve.) So I picked it up as well.After lots of broken strings and hurt fingers, my brother and I were good enough to start doing local gigging... and so we did! It was a fun time, however I just didn't feel like I was able to get all my creativity out on my guitar.I heard so many things in my head. So many sounds. So many ideas. All of which, quite frankly, a guitar can't come close to replicating. (And if a guitar started making these sounds I heard something is VERY wrong... or VERY awesome.)In order to satisfy this craving, I began experimenting with midi composition and production.Thus, I fell in love.T he Ground Above became my alias in a rather uninteresting way. I used to be in a band called "The Sky Below." Someone joked and said I should call myself "The Ground Above" and be the brother band... yup. T hat's it.However, I didn't change the name once I realized how "The Ground Above" has transformed to mean so much to me.MEANING BEHIND THE NAME:I believe positivity always needs to be seeping into your life, elevating you to be a happy, healthy and hatred-free human being. I believe you need to treat every single person as if they were your family... because they are.I also believe you're the only one who has the power to get yourself to this peaceful internal place.To me this state of peaceful internal being is "The Ground Above." Does The Ground Above represent the same to you?
