We had the good fortune of connecting with Marc and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Marc, what matters most to you?
Love is the most obvious but still true value musicians need. It rules the relationships we have. It fuels our passion for music. It allows for a healthy perspective when writing, living, or making time for family.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I think most of us in the band wanted to be pro football players when we were younger. But through a confluence of accidents and invisible hands pulling us away from a life of certain stardom and unfathomable riches we discovered music. Football and music are not very similar and it took us many years to learn how to look less athletic and more musician-ish.

Oddly through a series of overlapping montage scenes with of each of us failing and then eventually learning how to play our instruments. We found each other running down the streets guitars in hands, amplifiers dragging behind us, smiles as big as Texas upon our faces, it was then when we knew with flexible day jobs we could play music regionally.

After the incredible high of our montage journey, we hunkered down and began to write songs about the struggles of people we knew or saw in movies. As a band we really want people to know there is a life outside of football or whatever their childhood dream might be. Even now there are still days where we cancel rehearsal and stand in the dusky dusk of a fleeting fall evening to throw the pigskin around.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
There are many people we owe thanks. Families for allowing us time and resources to make music. People like John Pedigo, Mckenzie Smith, and Joe Tacke for recording us and putting up with our shenanigans. To venues who allow us to show up and play and to the people like Michael and Elizabeth Carms who show up and sing along.
