My name is Caleb Whiting I am a student at Yampah Mountain Highschool. Music is my passion, I have been playing guitar for about 2 years. I mainly play death metal and hard rock. My influences are Zakk Wylde, Slash, Kerry King, Dan Jacobs, Chris Garza, Nick Hipa, Oli Herbert, Ben Savage, and Dimebag Darell. Before i played guitar, i was an EDM producer for 3 years.
I was born in Colorado but moved to Utah when I was about 3 years old. We moved back to Colorado when I was 9 and I have lived in New Castle ever since.
I decided to come to Yampah Mountain Highschool because, I wanted the freedom to be more independent and be able to learn at my own pace. I felt like the public school teachers never helped me when needed and didn't teach anything that was important to me. This school has helped me so much and all of the staff are very great people. I am proud to have come here and it has been the greatest experience of my life so far.
I work in the plumbing industry as an apprentice. I don't want to work labor jobs forever, my dream is to open my tattoo shop and continue playing guitar. I'd really like to see my band grow and become a big name in the music industry. I want to make people happy with our music and maybe influence people to want to learn something and stick with it, to make more music, and keep the metal alive.
" A life spent making mistakes, is more honorable than a life spent doing nothing".
the video below is one of the first songs that got me into playing guitar. Atreyu had a big influence on me and to this day is still one of my favorite bands.
