Interests: MUSIC =)
Ethan Johnson joined the band in its early days. Known for his dedication and will to practice as well as loving lemons. Ethan can play over a dozen instruments, but his main is piano. Having played piano for 13 years, Ethan has played keyboard and sings backup vocals for Little Us since 2012. Even though he moved away from the band in 2014, his devotion and loyalty to his friends and band mates can been seen through his willingness to fly back anytime to play any gig.
Rithya Claude was born in Connecticut in 1998. He began playing guitar at age 6 and took up other instruments such as drums, bass, piano, and flute along the way. He started Little Us back in 2012 when he asked Alex Pearson (current guitarist) to join. His influences include bands such as Def Leppard, Journey, Mötley Crüe. He is also inspired by players such as Steve Clark, John Pertucci, Vito Bratta, and Eddie Van Halen.
Alex Pearson. Also know as Slade, Golden Baby Drywall, Flex, and more. Known for his big mouth and even bigger heart. Besides his hair his best traits are his invention ideas and his loyal friendship. An original member of Little Us, guitarist and vocalist (and harmonica for a day) since 2012. Some influencers and favorites include Phil Collin, Neal Schon and Dj Ashba.
Fun Fact: He was taught how to play guitar by bandmate Rithya Claude
Zak Fitzsimons was approached with the idea of joining the band in march of 2017. After a jam session with Rithya he knew he wanted to be part of this. Zak has a basic understanding of programming, screaming, and bass but mostly relies on his drumming. He’s been playing since seventh grade just listening to songs and watching videos on the internet to learn. Zak’s influence goes anywhere from hard-hitting and multi-genre drummers such as Aaron Gillespie of Underoath; to some more flashy drummers like Luke Holland. Some other influential drummers for Zak are Cobus Potgieter, Daniel Williams (The Devil Wears Prada), and Scott Phillips (Alter Bridge/Creed).
My name is Alec Iacovazzi and I play the bass. In my free time, I like to Skateboard, ski, play video games, and listen to music. Some of the music Genres that i like are jazz, Lo-Fi, Indie, Trip-Hop and punk. I see myself as the “quiet” and “reserved” member of the band when we are in public, but when it’s just us, i’m the complete opposite.
