Wed, 05 Mar 2014 11:42:00
Who is stepping into the Take Aim ring today? Travis Clark of We The Kings, that's who! We have a nephew who LOVES this band, so this Q+A is about to make his day. Find out what the Kings are up to and what those delicious slabs of perfection known as Reese's Peanut Butter Cups have to do with their music.
Twitter-size your bio -- your choice of 140 words or characters, if you want to get technical-- and tell us everything we need to know! GO!
@WeTheKings are 5 members who met as kids and started a band in order to get girlfriends. Some of us have succeeded in that....others, not so much!
If you were not doing music, you would be...
Without a life in music, I'd probably be very lost...but if I had to choose, I would go back to racing Motocross and doing FMX! I miss flying through the air on my dirtbike!
Any non-music hobbies, talents or skills?
Outside of MotoX, I love cooking...I don't have a specialty, but I can cook just about anything! Also, since moving to L.A., I've been acting a lot, so hopefully you'll see me in something soon!
Pick ONE song on your record and share a writing or recording story. Something intimate, that you haven't told anyone else (or at least a bunch of writers or journalists) and that which puts us in the moment with you. Let's get intimate, shall we?
'Queen of Hearts.' This song came together after talking about Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. In the studio, we started thinking about things that came in pairs and we eventually landed on what would be a pair with 'We the Kings' and my most lyrical answer was, 'Queen Of Hearts.' That's why in the song there are so many comparisons -- Jay-Z and Beyoncé, Da Vinci and Mona Lisa...etc. It's always funny to think about how our songs begin to take shape...but I think this one takes the cake...the Reese's cake!
Finish this sentence: We The Kings is the artist that...
...formerly known as.... haha, just kidding. We are the artist that hopes to inspire change, create smiles, spark memories, and help fans escape into a world of music when they are listening to our albums.
