Joe Renolayan (Saxophone, Synthesizer, Rhythm guitar, and Back-up Vocals)

Joe started developing his musical talent through piano lessons at the age of 7. After only a year of formal study, he began to experiment with other instruments such as the bamboo flute, the guitar and the drums. When he moved to the United States at the age of 13, he was introduced to the school’s band where he chose to hone his skills with the flute. Since then, he has been exposed to classical and symphonic repertoire. During high school, he joined the marching band and at the same time, found interest in jazz and the alto saxophone. He decided to pursue a career in music by majoring in Jazz Studies and Performance at the University of California in Irvine.
