Indianapolis-based bassist Nick Tucker keeps busy as a professor at Ball State University and playing in two popular Indy bands. The 30-year-old musician says he has lots of energy and isn't anywhere close to slowing down. 

"I have an insatiable hunger for music," Tucker says. "I'm putting my energy where I want to, and that's music. I probably don't need to grind as much as I do, but I love the grind. It keeps me energized."
