Soumya grew up in Lubbock, TX, where spent much of his life bumming around musical crossroads, training in classical violin since the age of four, teaching himself guitar and piano as a kid, becoming a published composer at age ten, soaking up the music of his Indian roots as well as the country/folk/rock found in Lubbock and beyond. He's played in way too many ephemeral bands in Texas and in Cambridge, MA, where he met F&K members. Mostly, he just naps.
