What city or town do you call home?

Orlando

Are there any fun facts about your band?

We are Twin Brothers

We teach Guitar and Piano to elementary kids in an after school program.

We have had numerous songs placed in MTV shows including 16 and Pregnant and
Teen Mom, and more coming soon in Virgin Territory. We also have a song on a
ride at Universal Studios.

We got to share the stage with Pitbull, The Fray, Dia Drampton, and We The
Kings

We have released 8 Albums (5 of them happening within 1 year)

We have been featured by Dailyunsigned.com and saturdaynightonline.com

our songs have been named as song of the month by songwriteruniverse.com and
have earned us the ASCAP PLUS award as well as other honorable mentions.

What inspired the name of your band? Are there any other names you considered that didn’t make the cut?

The story behind the band name is terrible.

What’s the first song you remember playing onstage? Feel free to elaborate if there is a story around it.

In 3rd grade we sang The Hardest Thing by 98 degrees in the talent show. for all the ladies ;) (yes we have footage…somewhere)

 You absolutely cannot perform without…

Songs.

Do you have any pre-show rituals before you take the stage?

We use to play Rock, Paper, Scissors and the winner would get “the stone” for the show (which was an actual stone) but the stone has gone missing.

What artists made you want to play music?

Augustana, One Republic, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Hunter Hayes, Bonnie McKee, Jason Derulo, Neyo, Ed Sheeran, Skylar Grey, Bruno Mars, Kacey Musgraves, Keri Hilson, Sia, Will Hoge. All make us want to play music.

If you could open for any band on tour this summer, who would it be and why?

Augustana or OneRepublic. They are great bands that we really like and our style is similar to. And we would love to have an opportunity to learn from the best so we could become better songwriters and performers. And one day we hope to reach as many people as they have with our music.

What is you band’s biggest band ambition?

As Ratham Stone, our main ambition is to have a number 1 song on the charts, to be nominated/win a Grammy award! But as twins and humans we both have different personal goals.

You just found out your record got to Number One. What’s the first thing you do?

If we have a record go to number 1 and one of us doesn’t die from excitement I think we would start writing our next song to go to #1.

Lasly, is there anything else you want to share with us?

We are really excited for this opportunity! Thank you guys for choosing us as a finalist. We look forward to having a lot of fun and sharing our music with everyone
