Abe Kimball was born and raised in Yardley, Pennsylvania, and it was evident from an early age that music would be an important component of his life. He started taking piano lessons at age 6 and trumpet lessons at 10. In middle school, however, he discovered his true loves in singing and guitar. He began studying guitar in 6th grade and has continued to ever since. In high school, he took vocal lessons for four years and performed in local bands throughout the greater Philadelphia area.
In 2006, Abe came to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music where he earned a degree in Professional Music. While there, he studied guitar under jazz-rock great, Dave Fiuczynski, leader of the critically acclaimed band Screaming Headless Torsos. Abe also started an alternative rock band called Vending Machetes, in which he sings, writes, and plays lead guitar. They have released one EP, played shows all over the Northeast, and in 2011 performed at the South By Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas. The band is currently finishing up their second record which they recorded in San Diego, and will release it in the coming months. Abe is excited to join the Jammin' With You! team and spread the joy of music to all his students!
