Ok, I guess I’ll star with the most asked questions. So I was born in Wilson, NC on October 13th. I am 21 yrs old and I am 6 feet tall. I think my biggest influence was my dad, he was a musician so naturally I wanted to do the same, he was a drummer though. So far, almost everyone has been nice to me, though but there are some people that hate me even though a month ago they didn’t even know I existed, so I do not really get that, but it’s ok, I am thickly skinned. Well I had some mutual friends in mercy mercedes (which are from wilson too) on tour with them, and heard about Ian so they told them about me and they saw a video of me playing and next thing you know, I am here. I hung out with Ian a while back and we talked for a while, nicest dude ever. The songs will have every solo and every part played, promise. I will be singing too. I mean, I didn’t make him leave the band, so I do not see why the fact that I am there makes me worthy of being hated. If anything, wait to see us before you decide to dis-like me. If I am horrible, have at it. I play a Fender Stratocaster. I will most definitely be hanging out after shows and yes hugs are welcome!
My favorite bands are mostly classic rock bands like Led zep, def lep, lynard skynard, stuff like that. Yes I am slightly overwhelmed by everyone because I really wasn’t expecting it, but I am learning the do’s and dont’s right now, it’s kind of like when you have a couple kid’s, if you show one special attention the other kid will want it to, and then if you don’t your automatically a jerk. So with that said I will do my best to answer back as much as possible. Also, as much as I would like to follow you all, let’s be honest, I do not know anyone that is following over 900 people, that’s a lot! So no offense if I do not follow you :)
If your nice enough to bring something to us, we all enjoy gift cards and subway! The main places I can’t wait to play on tour are California b/c I have only been once and pretty much all the big citites that I havn’t had the pleasure of visiting, but regardless, they are all going to be a good time. I can play piano,drums,electric/bass guitar. All the guys in the band are super nice and we are having a blast. My favorite song to play so far is 70’s song. I love gatorade and scary movies, my fav. is beetlejuice. UNC baby!! Favorite ice cream is vanilla, favorite sport is football. Yes I do realize my name is similar to rian dawsons hah.
Whew, ok I think I got most of them, there were A LOT. If I missed yours I am sorry, don’t hate me because of it hahah. ok time for food
P.S. I just want to say to everyone that is being cool to me, thank you and I am going to do my best to make these shows fun for you and I can’t wait to hang out on tour!
