What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : Northern Virginia / Leesburg

At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: I met 2/3 of my band in November of 2015 when we were playing at the Sylvan Theater. It was sparsely attended and we were freezing to death, and we didn't actually connect till about five months later, but we have some cool pictures of us being miserable and cold. 

I never intended to be a DC area native (you kind of hate the idea of staying in the area you grew up in) but the constant bustle pulled me back in, and the political memes are righteous. 

My entire career is based out of Leesburg!

We are dedicated to environmental preservation, we are all best friends, we love John Mayer and Fleetwood Mac

Anything else we should know, or you want to share: I have four cats, which is a decision I regret only around 7% of the time.
