Where and when was your first show? 

Our first show with the final line up was in April 2010 at a festival in Toowoomba

What band/artist would you consider to be your main influence?

I think every artist draws influence from not one main influence, but several. Maybe I can answer it by saying that when I am writing something, I sometimes ask myself 'What would *insert artist here* do?" and most of the time it is Ryan Adams for me.

What is one of your most memorable or off-the-wall touring experiences?

When we were in Boston last year, the most hospitable locals took us out to a really great bar in town. Turns out a notable individual at our show paid for our entire evening and put us up in the Boston Park Plaza for the night for absolutely nothing in return. Just plain old hospitality! It was a good night.

Favorite Food: Vietnamese

Favorite Drink: Vietnamese iced coffee

If you were to have a film/movie based on your career, which actors or band would you select to portray yourself?

Sacha Baron Cohen

Cat-Person, Dog-Person, or both?   Dog all the way

What two words would best describe your music? Twang & Bang
