1AM is a mother-daughter group. This is the daughter writing this by the way... so I'm free to write anything about my mom. Haha... Anyway, 1AM stands for 1 Anna and Mom (I'm Anna.) I think I can speak for both of us by saying music is our life. We sing, write our own songs, and play a lot of instruments. My mom helped me realize my love for music by telling me stories of when she used to be on the road performing and singing. My mom and I decided to start singing together (crazy decision, right?) We started out by performing in local churches and other small venues. At that point, performing was just a "hobby" to us. We didn't really focus on it taking us somewhere. Now, about two years later, I look back on those first performances and see how much things have changed, including our mindset. Now, we are performing at a lot bigger venues, recording and working on an album, and even traveling some. We feel so blessed to be able to sing and perform. My parents still have their regular jobs and I'm still in school, but we make the time to focus on our second jobs: music. Like I said, music is our life and to us, it's definitely no longer a hobby.
