It feels like we’ve taken our time and are doing everything step by step so getting to do these kinds of events feels like we are in the right place right now. The festival stages are always the funnest. Playing outdoors and the energy from the crowds you can’t beat but we just go into every - thing with no expectations and do what we do. And by we, I mean to say my manager, myself, my drummer Ryan Perry and bass player, Keith Whipple. You always just strive to do the best you can and to have a really good time with it. Show the crowds what you have to offer as an artist and hope - fully connect with them. It’s been the audience reactions and just feeling like we belong on these stag - es and can hold our own that have been the most rewarding parts.

Grow - ing up, I’d tune into the East Coast Countdown every Sunday and hear Wintersleep, Matt Mays + El Torpedo, and Inflight Safety; they were like my heroes growing up.
