Ave Vinick has played guitar since about age 12, when he first heard the Beatles. His love of music continued through college, where he earned a Bachelor's degree in Music Theory and Composition. Although he went into business and then educational fundraising, he continued to write songs, sing and play for his own amusement. He finally decided to record a dozen of his songs with a group of talented local musicians. After nearly a year of weekly sessions, his first CD was completed in December, 2002.
