Sometimes our blog sounds like sunshine, music, and cake. This post we decided to take off the rose-colored glasses and give you a sense of our individual and collective struggles. In a world of the innovation of loneliness, we think it is important for people to understand depth of character rather than simply sharing happy moments.
We don't know a single person who doesn't have a problem on their mind. It might be work, family, finances, world issues...you name it. Each of us are no different. There are days when we feel overwhelmed by the difficult of the issues in our lives.
Some have an easy time articulating what is wrong and have no issue sharing. Others internalize them and do not enjoy broadcasting their struggles. No way is right or perfect, but each time we face these dilemmas we learn something about ourselves and each other. It is wonderfully human and, thankfully, we do our best to be there for each other.
It is much easier to make lots of acquaintances than maintain a few close friends yet, we would argue, the latter is more rewarding. Admittedly, it is not always easy to have eight very different people and personalities managing the present and future of this band.
We don't always agree and we don't always get along. And that's okay.
We do try our best to internalize and spread our central message of love each and every day.
We were recently reunited with our rhythm and it felt great. All 7 of us played at the Capitol building and we got that deep and strong sound that can only come from all of us together. We are sure that there will forever be bumps in the road but here's hoping the path leads us to be more unified to spread love.
