Jarrett and Sean originally started gigging when they were both 17 in a garage rock band, Bazooka Jill. They gained the respect from their friends and local community enough to hit the road in the spring of 2008. Unfortunately the band ended up splitting shortly after when the four members moved for college. Following that, Jarrett and Sean began to write music with each other long-distance from Hollywood, Albuquerque, London, and Dallas. By the end of college, they had developed their unique sound and decided to relocate to Dallas, TX.
