 I can't remember what age i was when I first picked up a guitar but it belonged to my brother, I learned the start of sweet child of mine but it was years before I started playing properly, I can't remember when exactly but I think I was around 14 when i started properly, My friend Jordan played and spurred me on. I was straight into bands and writing music from the moment I started playing and it has continued ever since.

How would you describe the Altered Lines sound:
Difficult to say, It's raw, it's real, it's a mix of so many influences but it's unique to the personalities of each individual. You can hear everyone's influences, but they don't sound like anyone else. It's Rock and Roll. But it's our Rock and Roll.
