What brought you all together as a band?
After two years of quarantine, the desire to express our feelings in a way that was healthy and nurturing while at the same time creating a huge bond between friends is what really brought us together. Music was a perfect outlet for that. Our drummer Anthony was always begging me to move home to create this band again when I lived in LA so when I had the opportunity to work remotely, I jumped at the opportunity to create music again
How would you describe the music you typically create?
I would describe our music as melodic rock and roll bathed in honesty, positivity, and creativity. I think this really sets us apart from other bands because we really work hard to create our own unique vibe.
Where do you find inspiration for your songs?
Songwriting for me always happens to be a gift from the gods. It’s just that, I pick up my guitar and it’s like the guitar tells me what to create. I don’t have a say in it. The song in all seriousness writes itself. I would say I get inspired to write positive words for people who need it the most.
What is the story behind your latest song release, Might as Well?
I wrote Might As Well a year and a half ago, but it never had lyrics to it. I was struggling with writing lyrics and top lines over it. One day to get the wheels turning Aaron(lead guitar) and I went for a walk and on that walk, we took turns writing line for line and the rest is history.
Do you have any upcoming releases?
We are hard at work recording a few summer singles. Be on the lookout for new releases in mid-June to early July.
When is your next live performance?
We are opening Musikfest week at the Funhouse in Bethlehem on August 5th.
