Imperfections’ vocalist and songwriter Donato Faoro grew up in the Pacific Northwest in the 80s (pre-cell phone era) with plenty of time to stay inside and learn how to play music. Luckily, out of necessity/boredom, he started banging on pots and pans around 7 years old and in high school, Donato acquired his first TASCAM 4-track recorder. After moving to Las Vegas he began writing songs and recording in a more "serious" manner. Donato was selected by CMJ Magazine and Coca-Cola as one of the Top 50 Unsigned Songwriters in America, along with his group The UTMoST getting nominated for an SCMA (Southern California Music Award). Donato has written music for Sony Pictures and recorded an EP called "Give It To Me" with Savage Garden founder Daniel Jones. Bassist Eliss Martinez has been plucking the 4-string since his early teens in Inglewood, CA. His bass and vocal skills are a huge asset to The Imperfections and their sound. Hard-hitting DRUM CORE percussionist Dominic Maglalang solidifies the lineup giving The Imperfections their backbone and musical identity - one that could be described as Led Zeppelin playing Cheap Trick songs thru Green Day’s equipment with Billy Joel on vocals.
