Starting out, the idea of recording our own music with close friend made the most sense. . After we did all the local gigs, we realized the only way for us to evolve as a band was to write our own music from our hearts and souls. We worked together to create 11 original songs that became MEANT 2 BE, our first album — We became committed to getting inside the musical note and playing music that make us happy. If we can find joy in our own music, we will find our audience that does as well.
