Signing to Atlantic Records as Love Arcade
JMSN: "Love Arcade was cool, I was in high school doing that. We would find these abandoned businesses and we would do secret shows there, and there would be 400 people coming to these shows. It was this cool little thing in Detroit which got attention, and that's kind of how all the record label stuff started.
"At the time I didn't know the first thing about record labels and what they did. It was just like, oh shit, a record label is coming to watch us play at a candle shop. This was stuff I was recording at 17 in my basement. It's crazy to think that was so long ago.
"When I first started doing music I had no doubt in my mind that this is what I was going to pursue for the rest of my life. Even though I didn't understand what that actually meant, it was just affirming it in my ignorant thoughts.
"All the experiences that I've had up to this point have been good. You constantly learn and learn, until you figure out you really don't know shit and you're never going to know shit. And even learning that has been the biggest thing for me."
