XS ROCK: What do you think of the current music scene?
Kenny: Spotify should pay us more thanks.

XS ROCK: For anyone that doesn’t know you, what would they be surprised to know about you?
Kenny: I like coffee and cats.
Jaybee: I am a major advocate for Opossum Awareness and Advocacy. Thousands of opossums every year are unfairly killed by exterminators, when they pose no threat to housing structures, and carry little to no diseases. Additionally, a single adult Opossum can eat roughly 5,000 ticks in a single season protecting us from lymes disease and other parasitic pests. They are nothing but a ray of positive hope and sunshine on our planet, and deserve to be treated as such.
XS ROCK: Is there anything that you’d like to promote or say to your fans out there?
Kenny: Debut album comin’ soon.
XS ROCK: Thanks again for taking the time to talk with us at XS ROCK!
