JIM CREGO & THE NORTH ELECTRIC
Born in Minneapolis, Jim grew up exposed to all sorts of different music and always knew he’d be a musician. He started out playing drums and soon moved to learning multiple musical instruments. At age 12, Jim decided to start playing guitar, too; having felt some mastery of driving beats. He and his guitar-slinging buddies played music at parties–never with a singer, and “always sucking”–but the experience paid off.
