Born in Ohio, Theron was raised in the small town of Jewett. His dad was a coal miner and his mom a school cook. Music has always been a passion of his as long as he can remember. It's always been a part of his life and he contributes a big part of that to his dad. Theron says that his dad would always have him listen to the great bass lines in the old boogie woogie and early rock and roll records. Those were great memories of sharing the love of music with his dad. There's no doubt that's why Theron's favorite instrument is the bass guitar.
