Michael Alan Scrima

A&R Consultant

Being employed as a teacher at music schools doesn’t just provide you with income. It provides you with band mates. This is how Michael Alan Scrima runs Force Us To Stop. The days of a single, steady line-up functioning as a band are long gone. Each song by Force Us To Stop features different guitarists and bassists who happen to be fellow faculty members of Michael. Whoever among them are available for hire at the time of the recording or show get the job. http://www.twitter.com/forceustostop http://www.dailymotion.com/forceustostop http://forceustostop.bandcamp.com
