My best friend Cliff Barnes and I were. Our name was (PC or) Passion Collective, our music was a deb-step, electronic-pop mixture and we were active up until the beginning of 2013.

We had a good stint but Cliff understandably moved away for work opportunities. Regardless, I’d say our two year run was good fun.

We almost won Eugene Weekly’s 2012 Next Big Thing Contest and did a slew of performances that summer:

We even released a 13 track mix-tape (free at DatPiff.com) titled “NOT PC.”

My summer in a band was most definitely a memorable one.
