At the tender age of 3, Abram Taber ripped open a cardboard box with a plastic toy screwdriver to get at the ukulele within.  Throughout the next 30 years of his life, Abram has worked towards that same goal: unleashing sounds with whatever tools are available.

Abram has searched for sounds as a solo artist, performing with musicians across a wide range of genres, including Pile, Guerilla Toss, C.J. Boyd, Rob Jacobs (Wei Zhongle), Hurricanes of Love, Billy Mack Collector, i dm theft able, and Crank Sturgeon.  Abram has also explored the sonic world as bassist in Sun Hat, School for Robots, A bit Much, Slurred Murrays, Paraffin Section, and The Sinbusters.  Abram has participated in many improvised music performances, including sets at the 119 Gallery XFest 2009-2014, the Impermanent Society of Philadelphia 2015 NowHere Festival, Frantasia 2011, and OpenSound.  The 11:11 and Happy Medium Theatre Companies have also commissioned Abram to compose music for their productions. 

Abram studied music education at UMass Lowell, where he received a Bachelor of Music Studies in 2005 and a Master of Music Teaching in 2007.  While teaching at Avon Middle-High School from 2008-2013, he founded a Music Technology program, introduced a guitar curriculum, and continued his predecessor’s work with the Rock Ensemble.  Abram currently teaches at G.W. Childs Elementary School in Philadelphia, PA, where he has partnered with Little Kids Rock to provide Modern Band instruction to students.
