a couple friends of mine that you should listen to, if possible: trevor gordon hall: the best guitarist i know...
and dinner and a suit: they keep getting better and better
Haha I can't believe you mentioned Dinner and a Suit. I don't know if you know those guys, but I've been working with them this year and I'm trying to promote them a bit more. I set up an exclusive last month too and it went pretty well.

I think they're great. If The Fray can make it, so can they!

anymore questions for me, my friends?
Well if at any time you're really bored, I'd love long winded, overly personal bios for the vast majority of the TDAA songs that were made hahahah - there's just something about hearing it straight from the horses mouth that makes the songs mean that much more.

Any actual vocal training? Did you always want to be a vocalist? Would you ever work with Aaron Sprinkle haha?

Why either of those? Do you just like them or?

I've considered becoming a counselor (or a psychologist) before because of the big impact that my own had in high school, but I think it would depresses me eventually.
i'll answer before i leave :). i'd love to be in a position to help people everyday. i know it sounds cliche, but its true. like you said, i know the influence certain people have had on me, and i'd love the opportunity to be that for other people. i think the school system and the way we treat students is becoming more and more disgusting. i think there are better ways to help kids than catering to their nonsense and making everything easier. we need to raise standards and not accept failure. i think we need to be sensitive of course, but not allow students to just have everything handed to them based on hardship. thats where the human spirit is found and able to thrive. i'd love to be in a position to try to pursue this sort of way of thinking. it'd be difficult of course, but i'd love to try.

honestly, the band ended pretty quickly after the release.. not much time to make one.. although we had a great idea for the bell and the hammer

I think that's the right attitude to have, so you should definitely give it a chance some day. One of my former teachers was.. well, a teacher, and a professional wrestler at the same time. You can live both dreams!

Thank you for replying. Have a good night!
