Rolando Zamora was born on February 17 1988. Grew up in Los Angeles, California played piano and guitar as a child, but didn’t take music seriously until he was in his early 20’s. He explains, “My passion of music has evolved over time, and it took my interest in music to another level. I had to pick the piano back up so I could cut music to the ideas I heard in my head. Then I started playing guitar to broaden my horizons even more.” Began playing in local churches, weddings, and home rehearsals, going through what he calls, “the post-preparation lifestyle.” “I wasn’t interested in anything I was doing other than music, and I loved the wide-openness of my life.
