It’s very different! Now I have 4 of my best friends backing me up with everything that I do! It’s a very nice change.

I grew up playing baseball every day of my life. I wanted to be a MLB player. It didn’t quite work out like that, but I’m okay with that!

Take every popular artist you hear on the radio, mash it up into one, and have 5 dudes sing it!

Nothing too crazy – I like to just eat some food and relax on the couch.

I can’t live without my 4 brothers in this band.

I want them to know that I respect them and love them so so much, that I wouldn’t be where I am now without them.

When I was performing as a solo artist, I was actually almost pulled off the stage by a fan. Haha.

Answers from Corbyn Besson:
1. What’s the biggest difference from your band and other bands that have come before you?
The biggest difference I think is that we are a boy band, but our style is definitely not something you’d expect! We’re really into the modern pop style, but we want to take that to the next level. We each have our own specific style, yet we blend so well together and that sets us apart from any other band out there!
2. You guys just released your first single, “Taking You”, a few days ago. How excited are you guys that the song is finally out?
The release of “Taking You” was a huge moment for us because it was our first piece of music that we released as a band. It was amazing to see the reaction to it online because we didn’t really know what to expect. We have huge plans ahead of us for the fans and much much more music to come!
3. Whats the meaning behind “Taking You”?
“Taking You” was a way for us to really connect to our fans, especially since the idea of us being in a band was so new to everyone. We just really wanted to let our fans know how special they are and take them on this journey with us.
4. Will there be a music video for your new single, “Taking You”?
There will DEFINITELY be a music video for “Taking You”! We’re in the process of setting it up and getting it recorded right now so stay tuned ;).
5. Will there be an ep/album out soon?
There is a BUMPIN’ album coming super super soon, so stay tuned for that also! We’ve been in the studio almost every day churning out record after record because we want to have it out as soon as we can!
