I can't believe it's almost been five years...
My brother and I used to be in a band called Solution Zero. It was a metal band that consisted of my brother (Colton Franks), Devin Close, and myself (Rylei Franks). The band dissolved back in 2015, which led to me going solo. After that, my brother and I worked on writing songs for my solo career. It didn't take long before life got in the way of our music shenanigans. I went back to college to get my nursing degree; he started a business and a family. Soon we stopped playing music together.
Fast forward to 2022, I invited my brother to a show for his birthday. It was a typical event at one of my favorite venues Hard Hat Winery. After the show was what really mattered. We dropped off his family at the hotel and went back out on the town. We convinced my friend to open their venue around closing time to jam. We got back to Hard Hat Winery and picked up a few guitars off the wall. We played as if time hadn't passed at all. We played the song When You See My Friends by Mayday Parade, Hellava Life by Franky Ballard, and a few of our originals. My friends were in awe of how in tune we were.
It's been over a month since we've jammed. Now, we've been practicing to play a live show together. Stay tuned to this blog to watch a recorded video of us at the event or visit my Facebook to find a live show where he might be present to play.
