In the Fall of 2001, I met and started a band with Matt Tenney. I was on vocals, Matt on guitar, and my brother (Drew) on drums. We practiced for a month or so and wrote one song, then Matt quit for personal reasons. A couple months went by and I saw Matt at a show and talked to him afterwards and he talked like he wanted to do the band thing again. I was talking to a kid at school, Brian Potts, and he wanted to start a band as well. So I talked to Matt some more and we decided to start back up, this time with Brian singing, Matt on guitar, Drew on drums and I would play bass.
