Overall, you’ll be happy to know we’ve added a few more stamps to your figurative passport and there are many places scattered around the world where you are especially remembered. 

We’ll start the world tour with the most obvious and familiar locations in Utah:

They discuss the songwriting process, the power of music to inspire others, playing covers vs. originals, promotion tactics for bands, and the importance of demanding knowledge at school.
