BACEFACE has always had a passion for music – playing the guitar, piano, drums, and saxophone since he was a kid.

With a strong understanding of music theory and songwriting, BACEFACE is the perfect combination of a contemporary and classically trained musician.

Currently, BACEFACE is a part of the team at Jungle City Studios in Manhattan and recently opened his own studio in Philadelphia.

Supporting Cause - Mental Health & Recovery

Mental has always been something that is extremely important to me. I feel that it is very important to raise awareness and provide help for those that suffer from mental health. The pandemic was rough on all of us and I want to provide a safe place where people can discuss their problems and get the help that they need.
