As many thinkers, artists, musicians, and other great minds have quoted, music is the universal language of mankind. Supes Base [which stems from a culturally and timely relevant joke in the super basic way of saying “super basic”], who’s real name is Justina Nguyen, has been immersed in music all of her life. Born and raised in Houston, Texas, she began studying classical piano at age 5 and competed in performance + repertoire, as well as theory + composition during her childhood through young adulthood. She also picked up the oboe along the way, as well as joined percussion + drumline in school. What started out as an extracurricular skill and activity that was imposed upon her by her parents morphed into a lifelong passion.
