" A brothers trio whose soaring pop rock album effortlessly blends sharp hooks with bright and buoyant rock; pooled with the wisdom and input of chart-topping songwriters "
The Orlando, Florida-based band began a few years ago with brothers Connor McDonough, 19, (Vocals/Guitar) and Riley McDonough, 17, (Vocals), only recently did the band bring in younger brother Toby, 14, on vocals. The trio gigs live augmented by Thomas Silvers (Drums) and Braiden Wood (Guitar). Unlike many bands of brothers, Oasis and The Black Crowes come to mind, the trio work harmoniously. “We actually get along really well. We all have our thing and work in categories by preference,” Connor says. “I write vocal melodies, Riley writes lyrics, and Toby helps with both. There are never fights because each of us can do our own thing, but also contribute to each other.”
The three brothers have crafted a soaring pop rock album of uplifting relationship songs that effortlessly blend sharp hooks with bright and buoyant rock. The album standout and first single, “I Like That” is a tune with tenderly romantic lyrics and big pop-rock beat. Ryan Daly and Anthony Improgo, along with Connor McDonough, produced the new album. “They really listened to what we wanted to do and let us try out our ideas, no matter how crazy,” Connor says laughing. “Because of that, we feel really connected to the way the recording turned out,” Riley adds.
Conjuring up the optimism in the band’s name—inspired by the sentiment “make a difference before you exit”— the band works daily to make their way to the top but they never fail to stop and appreciate what has got them thus far. “There’s no way we’d be anywhere without our incredible fans. They are behind us every step of the way and are a huge piece of this band,” states youngest brother Toby. In light of the many short lived and fly by night artists, this young, singer/songwriting, brother driven band, is one to be around for a while.
