Fassas was born in Eastern Kentucky and grew up in the rural mountain town of Irvine. His mother; a skilled artist and horse trainer. His father; a lifelong musician and entrepreneur. MF began to play guitar around age 10, and by age 15 was already teaching lessons as a part time job. The love of music in high school talent show bands became serious study in college. Fassas eventually found himself as a full time guitarist for hire in Upstate South Carolina.
Fast forward to now after 20 years of intense practice, songwriting, gigging with a wide variety of bands, recording, jamming, teaching, learning, being completely submersed in music every day. The once proclaimed "child guitar guru" is a true grit working musician, dues paid in full.
With guitar influences like Lowell George and Jimi Hendrix, paired up alongside songwriting influences like Jeff Tweedy and Paul Simon, Fassas brings you on a ride across dimensions of joy and pain, clarity and sarcasm. True musicianship and strength on an instrument, matched with honest, heartfelt songs written with the full intent of reaching your heart (and your booty) with a blend of Americana, jam, blues, and rock.
