Tyler and Jordan both are 18 and originate from Florida. They have yet to release an original song, but have so far released many covers of popular songs like “Stay With Me” by Sam Smith and “Sing” by Ed Sheeran. “Whenever we hear one of us playing something that sounds good, we all come together and see what we can do with it,” says the band. The band met through their manager, who discovered them through the likes of social media sites such as Instagram and Vine. “Most of us have been singing since we were little, except for Tyler, who started singing at 14,” said the band.
