In 2011, I had made my first attempt at a semi-official musical release with “The Golden Voice of Jacob C. McKelvie EP.” After hearing that, Nick, our bass player and a friend of mine since middle school, began urging me to try those songs with a backing band. He was in the music program at Keene State so he enlisted our first drummer, Jeff, and the three of us started playing those songs. We played some shows around campus and beyond for a year or so, then Jeff fell off the face of the earth (Where’s Jeff?) and our current drummer Matt joined the band. Since then, we’ve averaged 100+ shows a year and have toured all around the country performing for literal dozens of people (cumulatively).
