My LIfe's Worth
While solidly a driving and powerful rock trio in the classic sense of the term, it is perhaps Colorado’s My Life’s Worth’s strong sensibilities for wide-open, hook-driven verses and catchy, tightly-crafted choruses that separate them from the rest of the local rock pack. Driven creatively by Denver music scene veteran Dave, ‘DrSpackle’ (lead vocal/guitar) Spackle, and grounded by Kevin Maranowski (bass/vocals) and Rusty Skinner (drums), My Life’s Worth deliver crisp and anthemic musical punches.
A seasoned songwriter with 17 years on the guitar, Spackle was born and bred on punk rock, and still has a wide range of influences. Bands like NOFX, Alkaline Trio, Strung Out, Black Flag, Dead Kennedys, Circle Jerks, Social Distortion, Soul Asylum, Husker Du, Descendents, and Nirvana.
Dave has called Denver home since 1990 and has played in and with some of the top local acts of their day, with former bands Peyote Ceremony, Shwag, Hanging Thomas, The Grandma Jukes Trio, STAR 69, Alan Greenspan Project and his namesake group – Backspackle, among the highlights.
“If you were in a Colorado band through the years ’94 – ’98, you probably played with Backspackle,” Spackle says. “We gigged hard. We still hold the record for most performances at the Cricket on the Hill: 48 times in one year, including 7 times in 10 days.”
His last band before joining My Life’s Worth, the Alan Greenspan Project, enjoyed some national attention, appearing in USA Today and The Wall Street Journal, and on CNN and MSNBC.
Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, Kevin Maranowski picked up the acoustic guitar for the first time at age twenty and taught himself to play. In 1993, he moved to Santa Barbara, CA, for sun, surfing, too much school, and garage bands. Kevin has been playing guitar and bass for 12 years now, drawing inspiration from the likes of Victor Wooten, Geddy Lee, and Flea. A relative newcomer to the Denver area, he first linked up with My Life's Worth drummer Rusty Skinner in the prog-rock band Broken Symmetry.
Rusty Skinner was born in Columbus, OH, first moving to Colorado when he was five. At age nine he became interested in drums because of his father, who had played them in high school. When he was in the eighth grade Skinner's family relocated to Orange County New York. While there he participated in the middle school, high school & All County Jazz bands, as well as playing in his first serious rock band. Rusty’s family again relocated — back to Colorado — and it wasn't until college that he joined another experienced band. In the mid-90s Rusty was one of the founding members of Boulder Colorado’s SpiderHead. He parted ways with the group a year later to join Denver next-generation metal outfit Anno Domini.
After a six-year hiatus from playing music, Skinner founded the short-lived Broken Symmetry; founding My Life's Worth in March 2004, with ex-bassist, Maranowski.
