“Once riding becomes your job, after a while it just starts to wear on your brain, because you know that potentially you’re going to get seriously hurt,” explains Hughes. “Then it happened—I got hurt really, really bad—so I started thinking, ‘Well, I can continue to do this and be left with nothing at an older age, or I could chase music, my other true passion. That’s where it really began.”
In addition to Hughes on vocals, the group also includes guitarist Mayauel Garavito, drummer Rob McDonald, bassist Allix Johnson and keyboardist/supporting vocalist Jeremy Grasso.
With their powerful full-length debut out now, the band is hard at work rehearsing for upcoming shows and potential tours, while their recent music video for “Where Are You Now” continues to push the band’s music into exciting visual territory. For now, Hughes says the band is satisfied just seeing the daily transformation of their musical dreams into reality.
