Q: What is the story behind the band's name? Why "Common Ancestor"?
A: After many suggestions by band mates , we settled on "Common Ancestor". We felt it best represented the band based on the connection we all have as human beings sharing the same gene pool from Adam and Eve. One member suggested we call the band "Mixed Fruits" based on the diverse ethnicity in our group. Nahh! That wouldn't have worked. The one name that I entertained was "Marley Vaughn" in honor of Bob Marley and Steven Ray Vaughn.
