Some chat highlights?
The Debut Album: "We went in and we tracked it completely live in 13 days to two-inch tape. There's no autotune. It's just a band with their instruments and their voices. That's how all of our favorite records were made so we wanted to kind of follow that path."
The Live Show: "We're definitely a live band. We go out and make fans on the road, and so we've been touring for a few years without a full-length album, and so now that we finally have an album we're seeing people coming to shows singing along - like we stop playing and they're singing. And so it's really cool to kind of experience that."
The Artistic Influences: "We've been really lucky to have people like Jeff Beck and Vince Gill kind of go, 'Keep it up guys, you're doing good.' It's almost like something bigger is going on and we're just kind of following the signs and making music that we love and trying to go down the right roads."
