It’s a release, it’s a distraction, you know…it’s not day-to-day life.

That’s Floyd. Bassist in a punk band, park event coordinator, dutiful dad and husband–and my older brother. We had a chat over the Christmas break at our Mom’s house about our shared creative influences growing up and explored the overlay of being a performer that also produces various events at Discovery Green in Houston. We also took a moment to put his 10-year-old daughter on for a quick dip into her artistic interests.

A new Album from Dead to the World called Fire can be found on Spotify and iTunes.
