Everyone in Despised Icon was jumping on a new train, trying something else - trying out the family life, trying out new career opportunities, and I kind of felt pressured at my age nearing 30 to do what the rest of my boys were doing, and so I did; I got an awesome marketing job for a clothing retailer, was working the office job 9 to 5, a steady paycheck and great team, but I wasn't happy because I felt like I was stepping on my own toes with something that I wasn't ready to do. And it really came down to me questioning what I had to do to become happy in life, and the answer was simple - play music. So I quit everything and put everything on the line - stability, security, etc. So I started a new band, called it Obey The Brave, and here we are, and I'm happy I took that chance, because it wasn't necessarily a done deal.
