Great, thank you!

I started music when I was about 5 years old. Between kindergarten and high school, I was in jazz band, school band, and playing in church. My love for songwriting and producing didn’t really start til I was in college. Being around my peers pushed me to not only expand my talents, but to learn more about the music industry.
Journalist; How did you get into music?
My parents, mainly my dad. His side of the family is full of musicians. Back home, they are known for playing around the Caribbean. He pushed me as a kid to read music and to learn music theory, which I am extremely blessed to know.
Journalist; Who inspires you the most musically?
Hmmm, there are so many people who inspire me musically. From Michael Jackson, Prince, Metallica, Bob Marley… all the way to Travis Scott, Don Toliver, Drake, Eminem. I listen to a lot of music, we’ll be here for days if I list all my inspirations, haha!

‘Self Care’ , a song that written by Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst in collaboration with Teams up with Band Nerds
We Are Band Nerds teams up with Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst for new single “Self Care”. This is the first song we have heard from We Are Band Nerds since their EP release , and it is a great way to start. The track features Fred Durst spitting rhymes about the importance of self care, which is something everyone can benefit from hearing more often.
“We wanted to write a song that was more personal than anything we’ve done before, and we knew Fred would be the perfect person to collaborate with,” said guitarist Dylan Beal. “He has such an incredible voice and he really helped us push ourselves as musicians.”
The song is about taking care of yourself and not letting anything stand in your way. It’s a universal message for everyone, but specifically aimed at those who have struggled with mental health issues or feeling like they don’t have their shit together.
We Are Band Nerds is the brainchild of vocalist/guitarist Josh Becker, who wanted to create a project that combined all of his favorite things: music, passion, and a sense of humor. The band boasts six members — two guitarists (Josh Becker & Brett “The Wizard” Wright), two bassists (Justin Hernandez & Jordan Lewis), a drummer (Dan “The Machine” McLain) and saxophonist extraordinaire Braden Higgins.
“Mental health is important, take time to check on yourself“ – Brandon Cross, Lead Singer/Rapper
