What did your journey into music look like?
I started playing trumpet in third grade. I synced up with my current band in high school. We all grew up together, and we started writing music and playing shows at age 15. Throughout high school and college we would sneak out and play gigs in New York. We’d play at bars when we were 16 years old. They’d make us wait outside until it was our turn to play because we were underage, and then we’d have to run onstage, play our set, and get ushered out.
In college we would play together on weekends and sneak down to Boston or New York to do recording sessions, but it wasn’t that serious.
