“Growing up where I did, I first turned to bands in the New York/New Jersey scene like Senses Fail and Taking Back Sunday. Let It Enfold You and Tell All Your Friends were the landmark albums that shaped who I was, who I would become, and virtually every decision I’ve made since then. That statement sounds pretty weighted, but it’s no exaggeration. When it’s just you sitting alone in your room with those records, they instantly become a part of you. So I did precisely as the album titles stated. I let the music take me in and devoted every subsequent breath to it. That was it for me. There was no going back.”
