Who are your musical heroes and influences? Why?

Stevie Nicks and Sade because their voices are epic. They are legendary in their on rite and their styles are both timeless.

Do you have any advice for someone just getting started in the music business?

Always make sure you know what the heck is going on! Know your business and don’t let anyone BS you, but most importantly push as hard as possible and let nothing sway you from your dreams and goals.

What piece of advice did you ignore that you wish you hadn’t?

I wish I would have listened more to my brother and my dad when it came to being more involved in the business aspect of things in the past instead of just counting on everyone else to handle all the business.

Do you have a greatest gig story or worst gig horror story you’d like to share?

Playing overseas for the first time in the UK for the Download Festival was amazing and we had a blast. I remember feeling sick to my stomach with nervousness on seeing just how massive the crowd was. It was an intense epic moment in time.
Do you have any other hobbies other than playing music? Collect stamps? Collect hats from off the side of the road? Draw pictures of peckers or boobs? Make sock puppets? Sit in the dark and eat Cheetos?

I collect Walt Disney’s Goofy items and I am a old school horror movie fanatic.

What do you think about the current music scene or lack of? Care to address that?

It would be nice if the music scene had more camaraderie. It seems like nowadays everyone is only out for themselves and that kinda blows. There are so many great bands and musicians out there to get to know and play with but I notice the scene is very “clicky”.

Do you think reality shows like American Idol, X factor and The Voice have helped or hurt the music industry as a whole?

One could say these shows have over saturated the industry but it’s also helped a lot of people get their voice heard.

What is your opinion of unauthorized music downloads? 

It helps and it hurts. I think it has pushed the music industry in the direction that it’s going.

Tell us something about each of your band members that we wouldn’t expect to hear.

Jason is a human cyborg, seriously he’s part robot!! He’s so strong and can take a lot..more than the average human. Darren and I were both born with 12 fingers. Both of us had them cut when we were babies, but we still have the little bump on the side of our hands. We’re a band of mutants lol

Hypothetical situation. You’re on Gilligan’s island and you get to hook up with only one of the survivors… Which one and why?

Probably Russell Johnson’s character The Professor, because he’s more my type and he just comes off so debonair.

Do you know what a vinyl album is and have your ever purchased one? If so, what was it?

I was raised on vinyl. My mother has a huge collection of old records she would play all the time when I was a kid. I definitely have an appreciation for the look and the sound of vinyl.

You’re marooned on an island with Justin Bieber. Do you choke him out the first night in his sleep or what?

I don’t know Justin Bieber like that so I couldn’t say.

What is your opinion of Miley Cyrus?

I actually don’t have an opinion on Miley Cyrus, because I don’t know her personally. I just try to stay in my own lane and not focus on what others are doing.

Which would you rather hear in concert? Lip synching or real vocals?

Real vocals! I can listen to a record from the comfort of my home anytime. If I go out to see a show, I want to see a real show.

Who, or what, is the next big thing?

I hope it’s us 🙂

One artist you can’t get enough of and can’t live without is…

I need Stevie Nicks/ Fleetwood Mac in my life, because their music has influenced me so much.

Confession time. Share a secret about yourself.

I love people but yet I’m terrified of them..

Favorite movie of all time and why.

Anything with Vincent Price or Boris Karloff.

Our last question is called “Shout It Out Loud”. It’s were you get to talk about whatever you want to talk about. So go ahead and “SHOUT IT OUT LOUD

I want to thank my Lord & Savior Christ Jesus and all our loyal supporters who continue to support us through the good and bad. We love you!!!!! Xoxo
