Q & A

Can you describe a moment in your career, where you felt like you truly reached somebody or made a difference?


One moment that we felt we made a difference is when we played a Linkin Park/Soundgarden benefit show to raise money for suicide awareness and pay tribute to the members of those bands that lost their lives to suicide.

Do you have regular gigs around town?


Yes, we love playing local gigs around town. You'll likely to see us at Holy Diver, Ace of Spades, or the Boardwalk.

Is there a central theme to your band's music?


Growing up, we always looked up to artists that conveyed a genuine emotional connection to their audience. Those artists always inspired us to write music that is authentic to who we are and the experiences we have had in our own personal lives.

Tell us about your best gig in Sac.


We have had the honor to play Concerts in the Park a couple times and each time we look forward to the great energy that the crowd brings and appreciate the love that Sacramento has for the music scene.

What are your musical goals?


We would love to tour and travel playing our music as well as create music that resonates and connects with people just as our inspirations have done for us.

What do you sing in the shower? (Be honest.)


Justin Timberlake, obviously!

What message do you hope to give with your music?


To help people feel like they aren't alone with whatever they are going through.

What's the story behind the band name?


Our guitarist, Jared, and singer, Alex, were looking for ideas for band names from old movie quotes when they discovered the movie title A Foreign Affair. They felt the name had a nice ring to it, so it just stuck.

Where do you see yourself in ten years?


Probably dead or in jail ... why not both?

Words to live by?


Where words fail, music speaks.
