Who: Josh Taylor (guitar, lead vocals), Wes Mathison (bass) and Garret Huff (drums)
Where: Long Beach, CA
In One Sentence: "We're an alternative, indie-rock band who is seeking to be the best that we can be; push ourselves, captivate people and make a difference."
How they met
Wes: " I knew Josh in 3rd grade, when we first met. And we just hung out by default because our parents were friends and we were both homeschooled. We just grew up playing music together. And once we got into high school, I met Garrett on the wrestling team and just hit it off right off the bat. [...] I went to his house one day; he had a drum set and I was like, "I have a guitar we should jam!" So we started jamming together, and then we brought Josh into the mix. Then we got that great idea and went, "Let's start a band."
Garrett: "We listen to all kinds of different things, and when we come together [...] we put all of our musical influences together into one moderate sound."
Josh: Jon Foreman of Switchfoot.
Wes: Victor Wooten.
Garrett: Taylor Hawking of the Foo Fighters.
Red Rocks in Colorado. "Outdoor, completely natural, [...] carved out of the rock."
Josh: "I say Solar System Tour. Let's play on Mars"
But in all seriousness, the guys would love to go on a World Tour.
