Now Playing Tracks

Keaton from Once Upon A Time

  1. What is the last CD you bought?

I just started listening to The xx, so I recently bought their xx album from 2009! (vinyl version)

  1. What is the best part of being in a band?

The guys in the band – hands down the greatest part is doing what I love with the coolest guys on the planet

  1. If you could tour with anyone who would it be?

All Time Low and We the Kings in Once Upon a Time, but my favorite band is Mumford & Sons, so if I ever played alongside them my life would be complete :)

  1. If you could only listen to one album for the rest of your life what would it be?

Sigh No More – Mumford & Sons

  1. Are there any people who have been extremely influential in your music career?

My guitar/vocal/piano teacher named Steve – he has always been the aspiration and the motivation that got me wanting to play music and play in a band

  1. If you could have any super power what would it be?

The ability to freeze time – some moments are too good to just experience once! And I could take long naps at any time without anyone noticing haha

  1. If your life was a movie, who would you want to play you?

Tom Hardy – he is the coolest actor and almost as swole as I am ;) Or Liam Neeson because he is the man.

  1. What do you like to do when you’re not making music?

I love snowboarding, surfing, hanging with friends, drifting (in cars), and doing anything spontaneous and fun like cliff jumping or running through sprinklers

  1. Are there any bands your fans would be surprised you listen to?

Probably my true side of me that loves Indie/Folk music, and I am a fan of classical music played by string quartets. Also, Hannah Montana is my life.

  1. Has being in a band changed your perspective on musicians as a whole?

I realized that being in a band is even more of a team than the team I was on when I used to play basketball. On the court, everyone has to be working together, but if someone isn’t doing the right thing here or there, it usually isn’t a big deal. In a band, if one person is messing up, it ruins the entire song. Everyone has to be on the same page and be able to communicate with our instruments on and off stage

  1. Has anything about the music industry really surprised you?

In the music industry, anything can happen. Nothing is for sure, plans change, people change their minds, and nothing seems to be set in stone. It has a lot of disappointment, but just as much as it does that, it is full of happiness, fun memories, and lots of people coming together to share in one passion

  1. If you weren’t a musician, what would you be doing?

I want to be an architect that designs buildings and structures that help progress our society (schools, hospitals, education centers, etc.). I’ve always been fascinated with the construction aspect of art, and I know a lot of architects who are also musicians. That creative side of the brain for music relates to all forms of art, and that’s why I believe I find it so interesting. It’s just like a band coming together to write a song – it’s a bunch of guys coming together to build something and using all of their talents to create something amazing.

Thanks to all for everything, I feel so blessed every day of my life.

Have to say our release gig in our hometown. It was alot of people there and many of them were old friends. Meant alot actually so yeah.. that’s it.
