amy cavanaugh's cello career started at age 9. she chose the instrument using the scientific method - the line to sign up for cello lessons was the shortest and she wanted to be home in time for the ABC Afterschool Special. after years of intense classical music training and performance she turned to the dark side - rock music. she has appeared on albums by earth to andy and umbrella and once auditioned for rasputina. she takes the cello a little more seriously since she joined 24fps and only plays staccato when john's not in the room.
