In a 2009 interview, multi-instrument player and singer-songwriter founder Adam Young was asked why he writes so often about the ocean and beaches, being from Owatonna, Minnesota.

“I grew up in the midwest so most of my daydreams revolved around faraway places, the ocean being the most interesting to me,” Young said. “I’d never flown on an airplane or stood on either coast up until a few months ago and both experiences have proven to be even more inspiring than I’d imagined. I probably spend way too much time lost in wishful thinking but there are so many places I’ve never been, people I’ve never met, things I’ve never experienced … sometimes I’m afraid I’m missing out on something wonderful, you know?” 909-483-8549
