I had the opportunity to chat with the three founding members of the band, Jason Kloess, James Mason, and Dylan Trakas and talk about their new CD release as well as why they are a band with a conscious donating the time and talent to organizations like ISES Austin, the Lance Armstrong Foundation, Lupus Foundation of America, and read full story >
