Where can we buy or find the whole EP? How many years have you been in the band?

Group: We’ve all been in the band for about 3 years. Fans can find our EP on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, and Amazon.


What makes you the same as your band members? What is your role as a member?

Drew: We all are driven and hard-working. We are working towards the same goal. I am the songwriter and help arrange the harmonies.

T.C.: We all have the same passion and want to be able to spread our music all around the world. I use my fashion sense to influence the group’s overall style and look.

Blake: We all are very different, but relate to our love for music and our passion for the band. I tend to be sort of the parental figure in the band, but I also help a lot with choreography.

Jayk: We all have such similar interests. We have a love for dancing, singing, performing and a love for music. I do a lot of the band’s social media. I figure out ways to keep the fans engaged and make them feel like they're a part of this movement. If it weren’t for them we wouldn't be anything.

 If you were not in a band, what do you think you would be doing instead?

Drew: Something in fashion. 

T.C.: I would want to be a professional baseball player. Possibly a veterinarian or have a clothing line.

Blake: I have several different realities with very different aspirations. I would love to get my Ph.D. in philosophy or archeology and teach. I would love to travel around the world discovering new species of animals and plants. I would love to own my dance studio.

Jayk: something sports-related. I grew up playing baseball and football and always wanted to be an NFL quarterback.

Who do you admire that is already in the music industry?

T.C.: I admire Chris Brown for his dance ability, Justin Timberlake for his all-around stage presence and Fall Out Boy / Panic At The Disco for the music writing.

Blake: Lady Gaga has amazing talent, a workhorse mentality, and a heart of gold.

What makes someone “beautiful”?

Drew: Everything about them. The way they act and how they react in situations. I don’t like a lot of attitude. I like laid back, chill and fun. Also, someone who loves to laugh.

TC: Having a kind soul & good heart.

Blake: For me personally, I think confidence, passion, and having common interests makes someone beautiful.

Drew: Seeing someone who doesn’t work hard achieve success, when my order is wrong at a restaurant, and LA traffic. An annoying habit of mine is that I’m late often.

TC: It makes me mad when someone cutting me off while driving. Whenever my shoes get scuffed I always have to stop to clean them immediately.

Blake: Intolerance, stupidity, speaking on subjects with lack of personal experience, and abusing animals. Sometimes I act like I know everything.

Jayk: Flakey people and when people don't appreciate what they have. I sing extremely loud in the shower.

TC: Black, white & black (I really like black!)

Jayk: Red, baby blue, and black



How is the music you are currently making different from any other bands?

Drew: We write it all. The music focuses on playful events I think people can relate to. We’ve all seen that hottie in the car beside us…we’ve all got that person that calls us in the middle of the night.

T.C.: We write all of our music.

Blake: Our music is different because it comes from our own personal experiences mixed with all of our different musical influences.

Jayk: We all write it all. That's the coolest thing about not being put together by someone else. We have so much artistic freedom.


Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Drew: In space hanging with aliens.

TC: Having success with the band and also having a venture in the fashion industry.

Blake: Writing/ acting/ producing television and movies in the horror realm.
