Biography

ABOUT LOST LIVES
The last founding member of Lost Lives, Tony Nelson, grew up on the streets of Baltimore City where he spent much of his early days playing drums. It was during his teen years that Tony’s brother convinced him to start playing bass guitar. Tony spent the next 5 years playing the Baltimore club circuit with his brother. After a successful run in his brothers group, Tony was recruited as the drummer for a working R&B band. Tony spent the next 10 years playing drums with this group until one day tragedy struck. Tony seriously injured his back, cutting short his career as a drummer. Not to be discouraged by his injury and determined to continue on in music, Tony began perfecting his bass playing and in the process created a style and tone that is uniquely his. Tony’s playing brings a smooth complexity to the music that has almost become a lost art form in rock music. The Band’s drummer Mike Bingman is talent in its rawest form. Tony met Mike while he was still in high school. Mike had just recently quit playing drums in a metal band where double bass was king and the faster and louder the music the better. After a few practices, Mike honed his skills into a perfect mix of rhythmic simplicity and raw explosive aggression. Mike has also played in numerous cover bands and can put beats to anything from R&B/ Hip Hop to Hard Rock/Metal. Mike still takes lessons to increase his knowledge and his skills to become one of the most talented drummers in the region. Drew Kramer joined the group bringing his excellent young songwriting talent and rhythm guitar skills. As a writer, he brings alot to this band. Mostly as a musician, but also as a lyricist. He brings a high energy punk sound to the band that has all but faded and will hopefully bring this group to the limelight. The newest addition to the band is our frontman, Timothy Birdsall. Hailing from a nothing town in Northern Michigan, where the music scene has practically died, he was more than greatful to have a chance to work with the musicians is this group. Tim is a multi-talented musician and vocalist who brings skill in many different genres including: hip-hop, grunge, hard rock,, alternative, and punk, and Metal. He's been a guitar player since his sophmore year in high school. Sice then, he tried over and over to put groups together, but he just couldn't seem to kick them off of the ground. After his work in 5 failed bands he decided to go solo and write alone. He began producing all of his own music from scratch, but found it hard to pick a genre and stick with it. He moved out here to Baltimore, looking for something more and he's found it. His writing and composing skills compliment Drew's, Mike's rhythms hit like bomb explosions, and Tony's bass lines bring the house down. All together they enhance the chances of the new Lost Lives to go further than they have ever gone. The new music sends a shockwave through you, that not only targets your flesh and your bone, but your heart and mind. Like a GREAT PHOENIX when you think They''re dead and gone "THEY RISE FROM THE ASHES" to bring the world Hard Kick Ass Rock & Roll. LOST LIVES DEDICATES THEIR MUSIC TO ALL THE LIVES SACRIFICED IN THE NAME OF FREEDOM AND ALSO THE LIVES TAKEN FROM US NEEDLESSLY BEFORE THEIR TIME.
