Val Emmich showed his interest in music since he was still a kid. However, he quickly quit his music lessons because he couldn't stand the patience needed. Things changed when he was in the sophomore year of high school and diagnosed with Lyme Disease which made him unable to play on the school soccer team. Having much time on his hand, he then took the acoustic guitar his parents bought for him and started to strum some riffs. At that point, beside learning how to strum a guitar, he also learned how to be more patient and he was glad for that.
