How does your music differ from other groups?
Katie:
Well first of all, we are a guy and girl group. We are three guys and three girls, and we are influenced by just about every kind of music there is. So we do pop, rock, rnb, latin rock, hip hop, techno dance…you know you name it … we do it all.

It’s a long story but essentially there is a line in an Earth Wind and Fire song. “Our voices will ring forever- as one”

Michelle:
Throw something at me.. not something hard though *laughs*.
Nathan: Crazy outfits.

What’s the craziest fan experience you’ve had?

Some of the fans threw a visor in my yard so they would have to come get it and to take a piece of grass.

Follow your dreams.

Do you think with being pretty young that your ages have helped you to a certain extent with music?
Nathan:
Definatly, we’re more intune and involved.
Drew: Since we are young, we bring youthfullness, and people like us because we are attractive.

All:
Thank you for the support.
