By Kreig Marks, July 2024


TRR:  Could you tell us about how your band formed and what inspired you to start making music together?

CS:  Our band was formed at Harrah’s Cherokee casino. We all respected each other’s musicianship and realized we all had a common goal of it in the music industry. That’s why we started playing together. 

TRR:  What would you say sets your music apart from other emerging rock bands today?

CS:  I would say high energy, and elite level musicianship. 

TRR:  How would you describe your band's sound and style? Are there any specific artists or bands that have influenced your music?


CS:  I would describe our band as Appalachian Rock, a mix between blues, country and rock. Some of the biggest influences would be Govt Mule, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Police, Rush, SRV, Jimi Hendrix, Waylon Jennings and more. 

TRR:  What has been the biggest challenge your band has faced so far, and how did you overcome it?


CS:  Getting recognition or any kind of notoriety. We haven’t completely overcome it yet, but we are keeping the roads hot and playing as many gigs as possible. 


TRR:  Can you share a memorable moment from one of your performances or recording sessions that stands out to you?


CS:  Playing  with Workin Man Blues with Brent Mason in Nashville at Hilltop Studio. 


TRR:  What are your short-term and long-term goals as a band? Where do you see yourselves in the next few years?


CS:  Long term goal is to be remembered forever for our music. In the next few years we see ourselves touring arenas. 


TRR:  How do you approach songwriting as a band? Is it a collaborative process, or does each member contribute individually?


CS:  Both. When ideas strike, we put them to use, whether it’s one of us or all of us.
