We’re excited about the way this one turned out. Special thanks to our friend Joshua Voelker, who owns and operates his own production company, The Adventures of Us. Your expertise and experience lead to one of our best shoots. Needless to say great lighting, sound equipment, & four cameras really helps our viewers feel like they’re in room with us . Check out Joshua’s other work here.
All four members of YRS (Andy Tongren, Dylan Scott, Julian Dimagiba & Steve Patrick) were super chill & easy to get along with. The interview goes into great detail about how traveling the world playing music is a dream come true for the group. We unpack the band's success by discussing their mentors, the importance of family, and never giving up. Make sure you check out the entire interview above. If you’re a Young Rising Sons Fanatic you’ll appreciate some new music and album news sprinkled throughout.
