I mean, at Berklee we don’t really have sports teams, so instead of the kids rooting for sports teams, we all just root for bands.
Going to Berklee you learn a lot of formal things as far as how you play your instrument. The biggest thing for me is learning how to defy that, in some ways. It has been a struggle to not just play what is taught to me and not just default to what I’ve been taught and trying to get out of my own head and play what I really feel.
I feel like most creative people have that inferiority complex in the sense that you don’t want what you have to say to be judged. It’s very personal. So my biggest struggle has been developing my own voice.
I feel very grateful for everyone who has supported us while we’ve been on tour. Everyone who has fed us, who’s let us stay with them, who’s talked to us, who’s hung out with us, who’s seen us along the way, who’s bought our t-shirts, who’s drove to see us.
