Jason (vocals/guitar) loves the groove rock of bands like Breaking Benjamin , Chevelle and City Sleeps; constantly honing his ability to write memorable songs that mean something, not just to himself and the band, but everyone. Tim, Heath and newest member "New Jack" Adam (only 20 years young) all have different tastes, as well. Be it Atreyu for Tim, The Used for Heath, and Primus for Adam; all the elements seem to come together very well in their original catalog
