You make your music. Then you try to find whatever audience is out there for it.
Jersey Sullivan is an accomplished young musician from Los Angeles who's been rocking out on drums, guitar, and bass--pretty much forever!
He's also an actor, having performed 8 shows a week on Broadway for two years in Andrew Lloyd Webber's School of Rock the Musical.
