Monday I Retire: Interview

The first words that comes to your mind when you hear Inspiration, Passion, and Strength

Tom Selleck

Who are you? (Answer how you interpret this question)

A collective of consciousnesses, cruising and grooving, fueled by


Why do you do what you do?

We’ve become family; now that we know what we are, what we

create, and where we can go, it would be a lie to not do what we do.

When did you know this is what you wanted to do, and what events led you to choose it?

The first time we wrote a song together made it clear that we wanted

to, and the first time performing it together made it clear we needed


Toughest thing you had to overcome to do what you do? And what/who helped you?

We encounter a lot of different obstacles, but the toughest ones to

overcome are ourselves. The incredible thing about doing this as a

family is that we’re there to get each other through it.

Has anyone/anything ever inspired you to become who you are (to follow your dreams)? Have you ever inspired anyone directly?

Each of the five of us could name many key role models that continually inspire us to be the best we can be, but we rely on

keeping each other accountable to stay fixed on the dream and

committed to our creative cause.

As for whether we have inspired anyone directly: hopefully!

One mistake that you made in your journey? How have you learnt from them?

The biggest mistakes we’ve made have been not recognizing

conflicts and mistakes as opportunities to grow and to learn

Upcoming projects? Plans/goal? (about anything, if you have any)

More recording, more releases, more cooking, more silence, more

sounds, more alone-time, more family-time; less over-eating, less

zoning-out, less time in front of the mirror.

What advice would you give to other people? (Just about life in general - It could be about anything)

Don’t forget to call your grandmother.

Say anything you want, about anything (Last words)

Try making Campbell’s tomato soup with homogenized milk instead

of water to spoil yourself.
