Thisara - Bass Guitar

BIO:

Thisara, born in Kandy in 1992 received his education at Kingswood. Generally a quiet fellow, Thisara is a silent assassin and rumored to be the local Keanu Reeves! He is a man of many talents and is a Video Editor, VFX Artist and Animator by profession. Thisara started off as a guitarist, songwriter and then found a deep passion for playing the bass guitar. The man has a remarkable voice and can sing in English and Sinhala with equal fervor (which is why we are motivating him to take the reins of handling more vocals in Stigz!). He is a cat person, an ardent lover of movies, an admirer of a variety of styles of music – with more than a soft spot for all things Doom – and digs poetry.
