Aşkın ŞERBETÇİ, his musical inspiration started as a 7 yr old child playing percussions by banging on tin garbage containers turned upside down and the covers as cymbals and sticks he made out of a tree branch. He started to play the clarinet for the school orchestra in the third grade.

My personal life.... Husband, Father of 3, Car Guy, Musician,
- Born April 3, 1972 in Kahramanmaras, Turkiye, came to the US at the age of 3, raised in Rochester, NY to present. I partially went to school in Turkiye going to the 7th grade back in 1986-1989. Came back to the US to complete my education from St. John Fisher College getting my Bachelors in Business Management and finance. I got married to my beautiful wife in 1995, which I fell in love with at a ladies baby shower party. My son Serkan is now 15, daughter Ceyda is 12 and the last one that was unplanned after 8 yrs is Sena which is now 4. It wasn't planned, but it was the best thing that ever happened. She was the Golden Egg that changed our lives as a family. My son and daughter were like parents to the baby. I thank God for my beautiful family and hope that we can continue to live a healthy life together.
My passion for Music has never left me. My dreams were to have a music album that I composed and produced. I thank God for that as well. It's amazing how you run into people that you could use their help with at the right time. Believe me I didn't intend to meat some of the special people I ran into. It changed the project brief many times. The key to it all is to have a lot of patience and think today what you want like if you already have it. Meanwhile don't forget to be with God, which will guide you without knowing to your dreams.
