Hi, my name is James Taylor, but I go by Squee in most cases. I've been a musician for most of my life, though singing and bass playing have become my favorite. I've been playing bass for roughly 8 years and I tend to pick up styles very quickly. I can play just about any style you want to throw at me. I'm also not afraid to try new instruments and multitask, such as in my current band I play bass with one hand and keyboards with the other, or bass normally and foot keyboards (such as with Tom Sawyer or YYZ by Rush). Vocal-wise I've spent years trying to get my voice better, finding that I enjoy singing Tool and Smashing Pumpkins.

I'm a very friendly person, granted a little bit shy, not into drugs and I tend to not drink a lot, trying to actively pursue my music career while keeping myself healthy so I can have a long career.

I have roughly 2 years band experience, 12 years musical experience. I love to do marketing.
