ARTIST: Army Of Me
SONG: White Flag Flies
BIRTHDATE: Feb. 22
HOMETOWN: Gaithersburg, MD
CURRENT LOCATION: Nashville, TN
AMBITIONS: To learn how to love. To build a cabin in Montana one day. To find as many arrowheads as possible.
TURN-OFFS: Cell phone absorption, laziness.
TURN-ONS: Eye contact. An easy smile. Someone who listens.
DREAM GIG: It’s a tie between Madison Square Garden and Red Rocks in Colorado!
FAVORITE LYRIC: Two souls too smart to be in the realm of certainty. Even on our wedding day. – U2
CRAZIEST PERSON I KNOW: Pope Francis, for being so radically orthodox, that it smells of rebellion.
SONG I WISH I WROTE: “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen. And I wish I could sing it like Jeff Buckley.
5 PEOPLE I’D MOST LIKE TO HAVE DINNER WITH: Bono, John Paul II, my deceased Grandpa Scheuerman, my parents and 5 brothers all at once, my future wife.
MY FAVORITE CONCERT EXPERIENCE: The time Army Of Me got rained out, at an outdoor concert. But the sun came out after our set-time, so the concert continued. And the headliner – Switchfoot, walked off stage in the middle of their set to let my band play a song, on their equipment.
I WROTE THIS SONG: With the idea that sometimes surrender and letting go brings a kind of serenity that is more valuable than things working out exactly how I planned.
The music video for “White Flag Flies” will be released tomorrow. Check out the preview here.
