“I think the connection is a really powerful aspect of this band, and is also what makes it so attractive for me. That’s pretty rare in Los Angeles - there aren’t many bands that are brothers and that are in it together.
"When they called I dropped everything because that is what I love and it is how I grew up playing. When you don’t have that it feels strange and can be really empty. But that is the feeling I get right away with this band. That made it all the more exciting to get that blessing. It’s like someone saying yes when you ask to marry their daughter. They’re not just saying that you’re good enough - they’re saying you’re accepted into the family.”
