Oscar Garcia Born June 5th 1976 ,In Mayaguez P.R.-

Oscar was always surrounded By Music and performance, as his parents were always playing music, ranging from classical music to pop-rock-country and Latin – some Jazz as well. At a very early age, he remembers watching a Kiss video somewhere around 1979-1980, and as every child, was hooked. Growing up would be Constantly doing make believe shows, anything ranging from rock to pop to metal. Fast forward to age 14, after trying out guitar lessons a few years earlier, drums was always in his veins, just hadn’t realized it yet. So in November of 1990, it was the first time that I would sit down at a drumset for my first Lesson well the rest is history. It became my Lively hood. After High school, I went on to study cusic and earn a bachellor’s degree In Music  (Classical none less), along the way discovering all sorts of amazing musicians and music  all becoming of my formative style. After College mainly doing Studio sessions and hired gun. Oscar moves to Orlando Florida (Jan. 2001) to pursue a recording engineering degree. After school then music and audio became a full time job In every capacity  possible, whether it was audio, playing music, drum tech. During this time, there were some bands, unfortunately they didn’t lasted as long as they should have. Around 2010, after a few years out of the scene, oscar comes back and through mutual friends meets April Montallana, she was in need of a Drummer for a project at this point just a duo (guitar, drums, vocals). Eventually this project became a full Band (Auditory Armory). Now eighter years later, it’s going stronger than ever with no plans of slowing down…… And the story continues.
