After seeing The Rolling Stones on TV and deciding she wanted to be just like Keith Richards, Ché's parents complied. They bought her an electric guitar when she was 9 years old.
Growing up in a musical family, Ché doesn't know how she "learned" to sing. "We always sang in tune to the radio or a capella, but would always fight over who would sing the harmonies, because they always seemed to be so much fun!" Before receiving that beloved guitar, Ché was already learning music theory at her weekly organ lessons in the suburbs of Pittsburgh.
