Angels And Airwaves' We Don't Need To Whisper was the very first cd I owned to myself in 5th or 6th grade. That cd high-tailed me into liking bands such as Taking Back Sunday and Bayside while my brother had influenced me into bands such as Underoath and From First To Last. In 7th grade, (2007-2008) I started to practice screaming to a very influential album to me. This cd was titled, "Dear Love: A Beautiful Discord" and had rarely been heard of at the time. During the eighth grade, (2008-2009) I had started listening to punk bands a little bit more, but had focused mainly on Hardcore music. Bands that I had found myself awing at were Sky Eats Airplane, The Number 12 Looks Like You, Heavy Heavy Low Low, and Enter Shikari. Then that's all I really listened to up until this year (2010-2011) And I started playing bass and listening to more Indie and Punk and almost driving away from the Hardcore genre, though I do still scream and such. (2012) Past the senior year, I was influenced by music theory and Indoor Percussion to begin playing guitar more often, and so, I became engrossed in the hobby and the want to perform.
