How did the band meet?
Luis (guitar) & Mike (drums) actually met first from some classifieds and just bounced ideas off of each other while they met with bassists and singers to try and out a group together. They met me (Ryan/Vocals) in late 2018 off of a classifieds listing and after one or two get togethers, the three of us clicked and wrote a couple of songs while searching for our 4th members. Around February 2019 we met Nelson (who Luis had known from previous groups) and we started working on rounding out a set of songs to begin playing shows and record.
What is the bands favorite song to play live?
This would probably depend on each of us but I’m gonna go ahead and say Fairweather is our favorite song to play live, it’s upbeat, engaging and just has everything in it that really captures what we are trying to do.
Our first EP “Within Reach,” just released August 2020 but we have already finished recording a new single and are in the process of filming a video for an early 2021 release. It’s heavier, more aggressive and one of the best songs we’ve created so far.
What is one cause that the band is passionate about?
Honestly, being ourselves. We aren’t trying to put up a front or façade to get likes and clicks online. We want our songs to be transparent and honest and the same with our personality as a group. I believe that being open with an audience is more important than putting together style over substance content and really want anyone that hears us, sees us or interacts with us to know that we are being genuine all of the time.
Anything you would like our followers to know?
These past couple years for us have not been without help from our friends and we would love to give them a shout out. We want to thank Gregg Greenberg (@greggygreens) for working on our EP, Andy Oceans (@andyoceans) for absolutely being amazing with our video shoot and more recently Javi Melo (@jmelorecordings) for being clutch on producing our next single. Everyone we have had the pleasure to work with has been a consummate professional and they deserve some recognition as well.
Regarding news for us. We’ll be releasing a new single sometime early 2021 and we know that it’s going to be worth the wait.
