My dad's paternal grandparents were musically inclined. And I remember as a little kid going to visit them in their senior building, and they were, like, the stars of the building, especially hosting and performing in their senior talent show.
Whenever I start to really think about what I'm playing, I may play it better musically, but the feeling isn't there.

For me, I just want to continue telling stories - whether it's musically or theatrically, this is what I love to do. So, I want to create more.
Aly and I went through just a long period of time where we just didn't feel creative musically. And, you know, we went through the whole writer's block thing, and we went through having two pretty successful records and figuring out how we want to transition as adults.
