Eventually we started writing songs, and that’s when we decided to start looking for people to start a band. We were a lot different People come and go, and Kenny and I will move on.
Finally we meet Travis. We started playing with him all the time. Then, through mutual friends, we reached out to Keaton, who lived four hours away at the time…and Thomas actually came to see us. He just moved from Tucson, Arizona and is looking for bands in the area. Going to Kentucky, so we took him to his studio in Lexington over the weekend to see what he was up to. It’s a perfect match. “
