I run my own band, Desiree' and the Time Machine', which consists of a bass player, drummer, and me on guitar/vocals. My band members are Rob Gottfried, world famous drummer who's been on MTV, Entertainment Tonight, Nickelodeon, Sesame Street, and played at the White House, and Bob Laramie who has toured with Matt Guitar Murphy. I started playing the guitar at age three and I've just stuck with it ever since, it's my absolute passion =] I also started singing at age 2 and I write my own songs as well, I started writing at age 8. I love being in the music business and I never want to quit. I am also currently on tour as the lead guitarist until December with the Michael Jackson IMMORTAL World Tour by Cirque du Soleil, August this year marking my 2 years on this tour. From there, I plan to pursue with my own music and start touring with my own band and to continue writing. I currently run my own business: Desiree Bassett LLC, basically my own record company, independent label.For more info about me on my career, check out www.desireebassett.com. All upcoming shows on my shows and the tour I'm on are posted in the calendar section. Also check out the fan page, Desiree' Apolonio Bassett on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/DesireeApolonioBassett), please add me there as well!
Aside from the music stuff, I LOVE dirt biking and riding ATVs (I started driving ATVs on my own at age 5 and dirt bikes at 12). I love the outdoors and doing any outdoorsy like fishing, camping and stuff =P I LOVE animals, but my top three are turtles, penguins, and flamingos, but I LOVE animals in general =P Anything artsy I love too, like making jewelry, drawing, painting, making models, photography, photoshop, etc. One goal I’ve always wanted to achieve with my music career as well is to be able to help others around the world with the power of music, and also help the needy people, and help kids around the world, whether it’s to give them inspiration, hope and faith, or to help them with having better lives by supporting with food, shelter, clean water, raising money to help cure from illnesses, etc. I like to try to enjoy life at its fullest, and whether it's the good times or bad times, I always keep my head up high and look at the good things in life, my friends, family, and fans heart biggrin
