It just so happened that Brian was online at 7AM one morning, and he was the first on to reply, so we tried him out.He came to me and Stephen's house and sang for us acapella and we were immediately sold.ATP: I guess its been a little crazy the past 2 years, with a few EPs and various tours.Josh: I would say we're a pop band with a live set that could be compared to a cardio exercise. John: I'd describe us as upbeat pop rock that you can go crazy to.B: We're a fun, high-energy, pop band from Phoenix, Arizona who knows how to have a good time.
We had another guitarist for about 6 months, and when he left we asked josh.
We had been playing shows in the local scene with josh forever but had never been in a band with him. Brian: John, Jess, and Stephen's old band broke up and they were looking for a new singer to start a new band so I reached out. Josh: Stephen and I shared an obsession with all Drive-Thru Records bands we'd always run into eachother at shows.
Brian started out singing by playing Format acoustic covers with his friends in high school. Pop bands like The Format, who are from our hometown, and Jack's Mannequin and Third Eye Blind brought us together.
ATP: For people who don't know who you are, how would you describe The Summer Set?
A week later I auditioned and that's when The Summer Set started. John: Yes, Jimmy Eat World was a huge influence on us from the beginning, they are an Arizona band that we all grew up with.
