The band began to take on its current form about four years ago, when Pollock and Gunn started writing together. The collaboration turned out to be precisely what each of them needed to reach a new plateau of creativity.
“I’d been in a multitude of bands through the years, none of which ever went past six months,” said Gunn, a graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston. “I’d been working on my music and writing for years, but I never co-wrote with anyone until I started writing with Jason.
“It has been a terrific experience. I trust Jason enough to release ideas for songs I have that are still in their infant stages. And so often, the response I get back from a suggestion actually amplifies the initial idea I had.
“At first, I threw songs at Jason — some of which were new, but some had been sitting on shelves for years. In most cases, the songs were brought back to life.”
