AJ Pellicciotti is an Upstate New Yorker, now residing in Brooklyn, who grew up on his Dad’s U2, Pink Floyd, and R.E.M. albums and his brother’s Jurassic 5, Dilated Peoples, and Pete Rock CDs. He picked up a guitar at age 16 and became hooked on music, the creative process, and the rabbit hole of discovery — something that still drives him today. AJ earned his bachelor’s degree in Marketing and his master's degree in Audio Arts from Syracuse University. He has a background in graphic design, audio engineering, and photography and has held positions as a recording studio manager, advertising media buyer, and box office manager and promoter representative of a 700 capacity music venue.
