G.T. and HouFei are life-long musicians, uniting two very different cultures. G. T. has been steadily working on the creation of a new band. With a strong personality and music to match, his modern, exciting songs and guitar work are winning Primal Static fans worldwide. G.T. became impassioned as a child by Rock and Blues and picked up the guitar which allowed his songwriting to soar. He draws his inspiration from many great musicians from primal blues to modern electronic trance. The passion and edge in his musicianship reflects the various worlds he inhabits, from traveling troubadour to isolated composer. HouFei once said: “when I met G.T., he was like a furious wild fire that lit up life and music for me as I had never known before. I called G.T. a couple of days after we met, and got his answering machine. A heart wrenching guitar solo greeted me. Time stood still. I couldn’t even speak when the beep sounded. That was my introduction of G. T. the musician.”
HouFei, born and raised in China, started playing piano at 4. HouFei’s route to Primal Static started when she came to the U.S. at 18 on full scholarship after being heard by an American piano professor giving master classes in Shanghai. Since arriving in the states, she has competed in international piano competitions and won numerous prizes. HouFei has just finished her doctoral degree at the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, MD. Possessing a profound adoration of the music, HouFei has found her true home in Primal Static. The electric energy and freedom reflected in the songs completes her. She now uses her vast knowledge of the keyboard for the music she was made for.
