I received my first instrument back in 2002. It was a Tanglewood Fender P-style bass guitar that'd been some how hidden from me until Christmas morning. Music has always been a big part of my life and learning to play an instrument was just an extension of of that love, however not everyone in my household was a fan of me plucking the low-end.
Yellowcard is an American punk rock band who formed back in 1997. They brought us such hits as "Ocean Avenue", "Breathing" and "Lights and Sounds". Unlike most rock bands though, Yellowcard feature a powerful violin, wielded by Sean Mackin. Ryan Key runs lead vocals with Ryan Mendez on lead guitar and Josh Portman on bass.
Upon hearing "Sky Run" by An Endless Sporadic, I've wanted to tell the world about my new discovery: a band which somehow manages to squeeze in almost every instrument imaginable into their one album, including "HandHammered Lasagna Warming Trays".
