Shiny Toy Guns



My road in life has been direct.
Lead vocalist Chad Petree had been "obsessively" into music for his whole life.
Bassist Jeremy Dawson was forced into learning piano at the age of four; he always wanted to play baseball instead.
Chad dropped out of school to pursue his passion for music when he was in the tenth grade.
When the band first started touring, they were "dead broke."
They shared a van and lived off of the dollar menu for eight months while they toured small bars to get their name out there.
Jeremy says that the fear of the band not working out actually converted into fuel to make them work hard and practice harder.
Chad says that he always just viewed his fear as another feeling that he could write a song about.
Both agree that there needs to be an element of obsession in your work if you want to succeed.
