“I couldn’t decide between a couple of names then this one came to mind when I saw the way the other members were helping me when I was going through a hard time without wanting anything back for themselves.”
For the last 3 years, as each of the members focused on taking care of their individual musical careers, they would share their unofficial releases via SoundCloud and YouTube before releasing their debut album.
