The Writing Retreat

In the winter of 2013, the boys and I got together to take the funny song ideas we had written over the years and write a full length album… in 8 days. This may seem ridiculous, but for us, it comes naturally (TWSS). We met in Effingham, Illinois, where E’s in-laws have a house. We made a make-shift studio in their loft.


We genuinely couldn’t have done it without E and A’s wives letting us play boy band for a week. JEWAM has kind of become a family operation. This is what it takes to be an indie boy band.


Here’s a snippet of what happens when the three of us get into a room together to dream about JEWAM.

By way of luck, the highways got so terribly snowy that they were all shutdown, leaving us nothing to do but write. Take a look at E (and his awesome white sedan) trying to shovel off the car so we could make a Mickey D’s run.


When all was said and done, we had a full record written. Now, onto the next part of the process – Recording an album! Stay tuned!
