Interview --- 1.  What was it about punk rock in particular that drew you in? I think I heard The Clash on the radio. I remember that I would go to the library when I was super young, like in middle school, and just check out CDs that I thought looked punk. And that’s how I got into Asian Man Records stuff. Like, I picked up Alkaline Trio, The Lawrence Arms, and that kind of led me on the whole journey that I’ve been

Interview --- 1.  Where did the name Kit Major come from? So, Kit Major actually came from my sister. My nickname is Kit. And then Major came actually from a Charlie XCX concert. I used to go by CAT with all capital letters. I was looking at the bill and I saw other people with their names in capital letters and I was just like, I can't see my name on this bill. I can already tell. And so I wanted to have a

Interview --- 1. Tommy and Shea, I read the first day you met in 6th grade you got into a fist fight? Who won? Shea: We did get in a fist fight, yeah. Tommy: There’ve been a couple along the way. Shea: Once or twice. It was at the pool at his parents’ house. Tommy: No one really remembers who won. Shea: I don’t know if there was a definitive victor or not. I think we just stopped and I left, and I didn’t think I wanted to

Q: You guys have had a long career. That’s an accomplishment in and of itself! What was the tipping point where playing in a band went from being a hobby to being on the path to success? We all kind of have different journeys because we found each other later on in different bands. For me, it happened when I was really young, but I knew with a crushing pain that I had to be a music creator when I was 9

Interview --- 1.  First off, congrats. You guys have had a long run. 20 years. That’s a success in itself. Not Many people can say that. To have that tenacity and that long of a career, that’s impressive. JB Brubaker: It’s been a long run for sure. We’re really proud of what we’ve accomplished in 20 years, and I feel like it almost is surprising to think that it's been 20 years because it doesn’t really feel that way to me. And then we

Interview --- 1. Tell us about the first show you ever played. I’m trying to think if that was me and a band in high school. There was this thing called Griffstock, because we were the Griffins, so we just would cover Tame Impala, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, and Zeppelin. It was in the cafeteria of my high school. I sang a couple songs. My high school friends and I actually had a little band reunion two years ago. That was cute. That was

Q: Who did you guys resonate with at the beginning of your career? Any other bands or people who inspired you from the jump? Scott Russo: Yeah, from my mom’s side of the family it was like The Beatles, Buddy Holly, and Patsy Cline. Lots of pop and old country like that. My dad, on the other hand, he really pumped in Earth Wind & Fire and Michael Jackson, and shit like that. There’s a lot of soul from his side. Our

Interview --- 1.  Which came first in your life: drums or singing? Drums. I went to a parade at 4 years old, saw the local marching band, went home and fashioned a drum out of a bucket and marched around the house. --- 2.  What did you play in your first band? Drums. And I sang a cover of “Message in a Bottle” by The Police while playing drums. --- 3.  You recently started playing guitar. What was it like picking up a new instrument at this point?

Q: What was the moment that lit the spark for you to start playing music? A: I think it’s safe to say we all fell in love with music in middle school and all perused bands in high school. ---- Q: When you were first getting started, what was the hardest thing to overcome? A: I’d say the financial aspect of recording has always been a challenge, if you want the best in production it’s always going to cost a lot. ---- Q: What was your first

Q: Did you have a moment in your upbringing that lit the spark to start playing music? Ben: One of my earliest memories is my father playing classical guitar in the house. Even at a young age it filled me with intense emotion and feeling and really for as long as I can remember I wanted music to be part of my life. ---- Q: What was the hardest thing about getting started playing? How did you get past it? Ben: Funny story
