Check out our interview with Eric Hutchinson!
I just started listening to The xx, so I recently bought their xx album from 2009! (vinyl version)
The guys in the band – hands down the greatest part is doing what I love with the coolest guys on the planet
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 :)
Sigh No More – Mumford & Sons
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
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
Tom Hardy – he is the coolest actor and almost as swole as I am ;) Or Liam Neeson because he is the man.
I love snowboarding, surfing, hanging with friends, drifting (in cars), and doing anything spontaneous and fun like cliff jumping or running through sprinklers
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.
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
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
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.
- Keaton Leander, guitarist from Once Upon a Time

How did you come up with the name for your band?
We don’t really remember where it came from but it’s in an old poem about the American Civil War. Maybe that’s where it came from.
Where do you get your inspiration from your songs and music?
From everyday life and just hearing lots of music everywhere you go. Like on the bus, stores, TV, whatever really. Everything is inpiring of you just let it.
What are you planning on doing in the future? (Goals? Plans? Music collaborations?)

Just a natural conversation throughout the date i suppose. Getting a bit tipsy and end up doing something crazy!
How did your band form?
Back in the day we used to go to all the local shows in our hometown and that’s how we met. Everybody knew what other people where into so it all came together pretty smoothly.
What was one of your favorite experiences performing and where was it?
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.
If you could meet anyone dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Kurt Cobain and Dave Grohl believe it or not. Kind of awkward but hey..
