A veteran performer on stage and in the studio, Fern is a guitarist and musician with over 20 years experience as a performer. A native and resident of El Paso, TX for most of that time, he has performed for an eclectic mix of projects, including Praise and Worship bands, Christian and mainstream rock bands, variety and show bands, tribute bands, and even symphony orchestras and symphonic and jazz bands. He mostly performed as a classically trained oboe player and jazz guitarist during his time at the University of Texas at El Paso, where he is currently majoring in Music Education. In 2010, he began to focus more on songwriting and composing, and after failing to find an outlet for his music, he began producing and recording his own original music in his home studio which he continues to expand. Having access to a personal studio, Fern taught himself audio recording and engineering, which has exponentially increased his productivity and a songwriter and musician, and has given him a much deeper understanding of the creative process and music industry. Fern is an avid collector of guitars, amps, and effects pedals.
