1. How did you get started as a band?

We got started as a band in 2015, I’d known Owen and Mycah for a couple of years before that, and I had been in a band with Owen when I first was getting to know him. We all were good friends and I just asked them if they wanted to be in a band with me.

2. How would you describe your sound?

The stuff that we have out now is very early 2000s pop-punk, very New Found Glory, and Simple Plan with a bit of a heavier tone to some of it. The stuff we’re currently working on… I don’t want to give anything away but it is kinda different from what we had put out before.

3. What bands/artists would you say have influenced your style of music?

I can’t speak for the whole band but for me, it’s definitely Alkaline Trio, The Lawrence Arms, and Jawbreaker are my three biggest ones. Some other artists would be stuff like Waterparks, Neck Deep, My Chemical Romance, and I have really been loving Destroy Boys recently too.

4. Has the rise of YouTube & music streaming helped or hindered you as a band?

Streaming has made music very accessible and so I think any artist who says it’s hurting them is full of it honestly. While people definitely are making less money per-stream than they were per physical album sale. You’re reaching so many people so easily, sharing your new song is as simple as hitting a button. So I think it’s helped not only my band but almost every band.

5. What do you enjoy doing when you’re not making music?

I love watching hockey, I’m a big Boston Bruins fan. Listening to podcasts is kind of what I do to chill out. Of course, TikTok is something I can mindlessly scroll on for hours. I’m also a massive history nerd and I love reading about American history and learning as much as I can about all of that.

6. What are your future plans musically? Tours?

We’re writing some stuff right now that I am super excited about, and we’re scheduled to do something super fun in June that I can’t quite talk about yet and of course, in regards to live shows we are waiting for COVID to clear up a bit more before we try to book any of that.
