Nygel began his musical journey over 20 years ago when he picked up his first guitar. Piano, bass, and drums soon followed the self-taught musician, who continued his passion for music as an assistant engineer/producer assistant for legendary producer, GGGarth Richardson (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rise Against, Rage Against the Machine).
