What do you have coming up in the next few months?

We will be embarking on the Projekt Revolution tour this summer. We’re very excited about this. Until we leave we will be working on new songs and enjoying spring time in New Jersey. Oh so lovely.

Do you have any advice for people who want to be a musician for a living?

My advice would just be to understand the nature of being in a band.

My friend calls it The Great Funnel. You put in a large amount of love and effort, and what you get out of it sometimes seems like a tiny fraction of what you’ve put into it. This isn’t for the faint of heart.

If you aren’t obsessed with being creative and if you don’t have something to say, it’s probably is not for you. That being said, if you know you must do it, there will be nothing that can stop you.
